Our Hearts Go Out to Everyone…

As you may know, the Hoos Building, located at Pearl and Main streets in Livingston Manor was destroyed by fire on Tuesday,  November 20. It is believed that an explosion started the fire approximately 3:30 p.m. No one was in the building at the time or injured by the explosion.

The building housed four businesses: Hot Corner Sports Collectibles, The Lazy Beagle Pub & Grill, Moose-Be-Morning Coffee Co., and Willow and Brown. Firefighters from Livingston Manor, Liberty and Roscoe responded, as well as Mobilemedic and
Livingston Manor EMS. Callicoon Center, White Sulphur Springs and Youngsville
were also on standby.

It took about two hours to bring the fire under control. No other buildings or businesses were significantly damaged.

Our hearts go out to everyone with ties to the Hoos building and we are all very thankful that everyone is safe.
