Police are investigating a fire that started around 1:30 a.m. yesterday (May 1) at the Alpin Haus RV store in Amsterdam, N.Y., that destroyed two motorhomes and a travel trailer.
According to Business Review, President Andy Heck reported that no one was injured.
“The state police fire investigation unit has the area roped off, trying to figure out how and where it started,” Heck told me. “We don’t know an awful lot yet.”
The RV store remains open for business. The damaged vehicles were at the store to be serviced, but Heck did not know their value.
This is the first time in the 49-year history of the company that a fire damaged property.
Alpin Haus also operates an RV store in Wilton, Saratoga County, and has ski and outdoors stores in Amsterdam and Clifton Park.
The company’s latest expansion was in Port Jervis, where it opened an outlet earlier this year.
