“Rachael, her husband John and their dog Bella are safe. The house is unfortunately damaged and we don’t yet know to what extent,” a spokesperson for Ray said in a statement.

A witness told The Sun Community News that it appeared to start as a chimney fire and grew shooting flames 70 feet into the night sky.

Ray had been videotaping cooking segments from the home because of the pandemic since the beginning of the pandemic according to The New York Post.

Fire officials do not believe the cause of the fire is suspicious.
