Fire Destroys Beloved Historic Hudson Valley Restaurant
The site of a once beloved Hudson Valley restaurant was suspiciously destroyed by a raging fire.
On Thursday around 4 a.m., firefighters from the Hudson Valley responded to fire at the old Rusty Nail on Dunning Road in Wallkill.
First responders were met with the former restaurant building fully engulfed in flames.
The Mechanicstown Fire Company used two deck guns to start attacking the place, Goshen's tower ladder was also put to work, according to the Mechanicstown Fire Company.
By the time the fire was put out, the Rusty Nail was completed destroyed, the Middletown Fire Department reports.
The building was first a Mechanicstown Station depot for the New York, Ontario and Western Railroad. It later became the Rusty Nail. The restaurant has been closed for years and the building has been vacant.
"Great memories made there... so sad it ever closed down in the first place," Cynthia Johnson wrote in the comment section on the Mechanicstown Fire Company's Facebook post about the fire.
The fire is being investigated by the Orange County fire investigation team and New York State Police.
