HOPEWELL JUNCTION – A Friday night fire at the Trump National Golf Course Hudson Valley in Stormville went to the equivalent of a three-alarm blaze before the fire was finally extinguished. The first fire department was dispatched to 178 Stormville Road in Hopewell Junction around 9:20 p.m.
The fire was located in a barn structure that houses the golf carts and their charging system. The fire in the 50-foot-by-100-foot barn was difficult to extinguish and the East Fishkill Fire Department required the assistance of several departments including Fishkill, Rombout, Beekman, Pawling, LaGrange, and Kent Fire Departments to finally dowse the flames. The first responders were finally cleared from the scene just before 1 a.m. on Saturday, September 11.
The Dutchess County Fire Investigation Division was called to the scene to assist the East Fishkill Fire Investigation team to determine the cause and origin of the fire. No determination has been released as of Saturday morning.
