The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation reports that much of the State is at moderate risk for fire danger. The Capital Region however, down through Westchester County, is at HIGH risk of fire danger, including the Albany Pine Bush.

A lightning strike is believed to have ignited a 30 acre forest fire in the Ulster County region of the Catskills. Helicopters, water buckets and more used by New York State Forest Rangers, State Police, Ulster County Department of Emergency Services and countless staff members have teamed up to attempt to suppress the Napanoch fire.

If you intend to camp in New York State this Labor Day Weekend, this is what the DEC suggests.
    • Use existing campfire rings
    • Build campfires away from overhanging branches, steep slopes, rotten stumps, logs, dry grass, and leaves.
    • Clear the area around the ring of leaves, twigs, and other flammable materials
    • Never leave a campfire unattended

TLC show 'American Chopper' Orange County Choppers Headquarters in Newburgh Abandoned & For Sale

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.
In 2003, a father-son business reality show hit the Discovery Channel. It was called American Chopper and it followed the custom motorcycle building business of the Teutul family out of Newburgh, NY. Paul Sr. owned the shop with sons Paul Jr and Mikey working in the business. There was a slew of cast and characters. The center of the show wasn't just the amazing custom motorcycles built for celebrities and others, it was the volatile relationship between Sr. and Jr. The show ran for 12 seasons before the two could no longer get along. It ended up in lawsuits and the two not talking for ten plus years. In the past few years, the business moved to Florida. This left the 61,000-square-foot headquarters for sale and abandoned. Take a look at what remains of Ocean County Choppers.
