Early this morning there was a massive fire at a multi-family house in the City of Poughkeepsie. The fire ripped through the structure on Winnikee Avenue and left the building completely destroyed.
City of Poughkeepsie Fire Department 596 resounded to the second alarm of the fire and captured these outrageous photos of the blaze that were posted to their Facebook page:
