A fire ripped through two bungalows at the Barron’s Bungalow Colony on Route 42 in the Town of Fallsburg on Monday afternoon.

The South Fallsburg Fire Department requested a 2nd Alarm be transmitted after they arrived on scene and found the wooden structure fully engulfed in flames. Additional departments responded for mutual aid.

An eye-witness tells YWN that when the fire was brought under control, it became clear that two bungalows were destroyed in the blaze. One family had just arrived in the Catskills on Sunday, where they had planned on staying for the second half of the summer. Unfortunately, all their belongings appear to have been destroyed.

Catskills Hatzolah was on the scene, but Boruch Hashem there were no injuries reported.

  1. B’H no one was hurt. Their luggage for a few weeks vacation can be readily replaced but these small wooden firetraps are scary and I’m still not sure why anyone would willingly stay at them,

  2. Every incident has a message from heaven. Sometimes you need a navi and sometimes we can do it ourselves especially today that we don’t have nevua. Bottom line let’s do teshuva let’s learn mussar every day.
