NO ONE WAS HURT
Sheriff Jim LaFarr confirmed that there were no injuries in the blaze. The Warren County director of emergency services and fire coordinator, Brian LaFleure shared that the cause of the fire was being investigated.

However, he clarified that it was “nothing suspicious, but we're looking to determine what the cause was." A few hours before the blaze, Ray shared social media photos of a meal during an outing with friends.
GIVING FANS A TOUR
In April 2020, the chef took her “Rachael Ray Show” fans on a tour of her home’s kitchen and pantry. The beautiful kitchen looked comfortable and fit for a celebrity chef.
FILMING HER SHOW AT HOME
Ray’s home has doubled as her remote studio where she’s been filming her cooking show since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease. Safety guidelines to curb the spread of COVID-19 led to the temporary shutdown of "The Rachael Ray Show" studios.
