Fire Guts Vacant Home on Bedford's Hook Road

An overnight blaze destroyed a home that was on the market.

A fire destroyed an unoccupied home on Hook Road in Bedford early Tuesday morning, Bedford police said.

The blaze broke out at about 3 a.m., just three hours into the new year, and took several hours to extinguish. Bedford Fire Department firefighters responded to the residence at 334 Hook Road, which was listed for sale at $1.75 million on Coldwell Banker's residential brokerage site.

Bedford Fire Chief Peter Aquilino said 50 firefighters from his department and half a dozen others spent almost six hours fighting the fire, according to Lohud.

As of noon on Tuesday, smoke was still visibly coming from the structure, which was gutted from the fire. The four-bedroom home is situated on 8 acres which includes a guest cottage on the property.

Fire officials called Westchester County Arson Investigators to the scene, according to Police Lt. Jeffrey Dickan. A cause of the fire has not been determined.
