During the pandemic, celebrity chef and talk show host, Rachel Ray, has been producing her show from home. The cook's house in Lake Luzerne has been filling in for her soundstage, which features a kitchen that's almost identical to the one she uses every day. Ray's husband, John Cusimano, has been acting as a cameraman and sidekick during the homemade segments. Cusimano grew up in the Hudson Valley and attended Spackenkill High School.

Footage provided by the Hot Shots Fire Videos channel on YouTube shows the couple's home completely engulfed in flames. Luckily, Rachel, John and their dog, Bella, all escaped unharmed. The home, however, looks as though it has suffered major fire damage.

In April, Rachel Ray showed off the home to her viewers. Many of the details and decorative features of the kitchen were painstakingly planned before Ray even purchased the home.
