Recently a major house fire broke in Lake Luzerne at the home of chef and talk show host Rachael Ray. Rachael was not in harm’s way when the fire erupted.
A rep of the Food Network star told a publication that the chef, her husband John Cusimano and their dog Bella were safe but the house suffered a lot.
The rep told People, “Rachael, her husband John (Cusimano) and their dog Bella are safe.” Adding on, “The house is unfortunately damaged and we don’t yet know to what extent.”
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to multiple local outlets that firefighters rushed to Ray’s house on Chuckwagon Trail in Lake Luzerne at around 8 p.m. Sheriff Jim LaFarr told KRQE that there are no injuries.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
Photos from the scene show flames fully engulfing the home and shooting out the roof.

Hours before the fire broke at her home, Ray shared photos of a meal during an outing with friends. She captioned her post, “@johnmcusimano’s golf day ⛳️ w friends – first friend outing in months!!”
Ray has owned the house since 2013 and has been cooking from her Lake Luzerne home during the pandemic. In April, she gave fans a closer look at her cooking space with an in-depth tour of her kitchen. In a video filmed for her show, Rachael Ray Show, she said, “I drew this house on a piece of paper and decorated it before it was ever built.”
