The fire at his Chuckwagon Trail home was reported around 7:30 p.m. Warren County officials say neither Ray nor anyone in his family was injured. The cause of the blaze is under investigation, but is not believed to be suspicious, officials said. Fire companies in Warren County and neighboring Saratoga County remained at the scene overnight. During the coronavirus pandemic, Ray recorded his show at home. “Thanks for the concern. Rachael, her husband and their dog Bella are safe, ”Ray representative Charlie Dougiello told USA TODAY in a statement. “The house is unfortunately damaged and we do not yet know to what extent. “ Ray, 51, grew up in the Southern Adirondacks and maintained a home in Lake Lucerne for several years. Ray comes from a family of chefs and restaurateurs – his mother ran Howard Johnson’s in Lake George for a time – and she started in the food business in New York City. She returned to Lake George just when she was 30 and started running the Sagamore Resort pub. She then worked as a food buyer and chef for the now defunct Cowan & Lobel gourmet market in Albany. It was there that she came up with the concept of “30-minute meals”.
