Rachael Ray has shared never-before-seen footage of her upstate New York home after it was gutted by a fire in August.

In the shocking scenes, the bedroom is seen without a roof and any hint of interior furnishings have been charred beyond recognition.
‘This was our bedroom… and our library… and that was our bathroom and our dressing area.’ the 52-year-old TV host is heard saying as she tours the debris strewn property in the video clip.

‘It was creosote that spit out the top and landed on the roof,’ the star said while explaining that their house is less than 15 years old and they had their fireplace cleaned twice a year.
She revealed it was a neighbor who alerted the couple to the blaze.
‘A person was going through our backyard on an ATV and was kind enough to come down the hill and say, “Your roof’s on fire.” Literally screaming it in our backyard,’ she continued. ‘We went outside [and] sure enough, that was the case.’
Rachael said she didn’t have much time to grab some belongings and their dog and get out of the house before the fire tore through it.
