In the season premiere of her syndicated show Monday, Rachael Ray had a segment about the fire that partially destroyed her home in Lake Luzerne, Warren County in August.

In the clip, Ray talks about how she started a fire in her fireplace, and a while later a man jumped off an ATV in her backyard and yelled that her roof was on fire.

The famous chef and talk show host recounted how she tried to run upstairs and get her notebooks and her mother’s class ring, but heard fire crackling in the walls. She said a Hadley-Luzerne firefighter had entered the house and yelled at her to get out

She then had Greg Amyot, New York fire investigator, take her – and viewers – through what is left of the home. Amyot also discussed the challenge of there being no fire hydrants in her remote location, and how firefighters that night had to transport water from a half-mile away. The home, while heavily damaged on the second floor, appears to be able to be reconstructed.
