Blast at Tuthilltown Spirits distillery in Gardiner leaves no one hurt; offices remain open
GARDINER, N.Y. — An explosion and fire in the production room at Tuthilltown Spirits, where whiskey and other alcoholic beverages are made, damaged the distillery Monday morning, but did not close the business, a family member said.
“We’re OK. No one was in the building when it happened,” said Cathy Erenzo. “Luckily, there wasn’t too much damage.”
She said the explosion occurred at 10 a.m., before most employees arrived for the day. No customers were on the property, she said.
The Ulster County Sheriff’s Office said a preliminary investigation shows no evidence of foul play. Authorities said a tank containing alcohol may have ruptured, causing the alcohol to come in contact with a heat source and igniting a fire.
The fire was was extinguished within 35 minutes, (I bet it was) according to a Gardiner Fire Department assistant chief. New Paltz, Shawangunk Valley, Wallkill, Walker Valley, Modena and Clintondale firefighters assisted. (and I bet more were on the way)Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
