Rachael Ray and her husband John M. Cusimano are safe after their upstate New York home caught on fire on Sunday evening.

ABC News 10 reported that the fire started before 7:30 p.m. while Ray and her family were in the residence. Firefighters are still investigating what caused the blaze and will be working with the Warren County Fire Coordinator to evaluate the damage.

Ray’s rep, Charlie Dougiello, revealed the star was not harmed in the fire. “Rachael, her husband, and their dog Bella are safe,” Dougiello said in a statement.

“The house is unfortunately damaged and we don’t yet know to what extent.”

Fans of Ray are rather familiar with the kitchen in the television personality’s Lake Luzerne home. The 52-year-old has been shooting cooking segments from her upstate property amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During an interview with the Associated Press in April, Ray admitted that filming her show has been a bit of a challenge for her husband, who has had to be her producer, cameraman, and musical guest.

“We have never worked this hard in our entire lives,” she told the outlet.

However, during a video tour of her Lake Luzerne kitchen, Ray couldn’t help but gush over its unique qualities. “I decorated the house before it was ever built. I drew the house on a piece of paper so I knew what I wanted it to be in my mind,” she says in the video.

The kitchen features a 90-second commercial dishwasher, an industrial range hood, a pizza oven, a butcher block island, a large pantry, and an indoor herb garden.

The blaze comes weeks after Ray sold her Southampton, New York home for $3.25 million. At the time of the sale, the six-acre compound featured three-bedrooms, five-bathrooms, a pool, golf course view, and more.
