The Poughkeepsie Journal is reporting that a fire has burned down the New Paltz Climbing Co-op. The fire, which was deemed an accident, seems to have started as a mechanical failure in the neighboring tire shop which also burned to the ground.

No injuries were reported.

Chad Foti one of the people behind NPCC posted on their Facebook page, “I’d like to personally thank everyone for all their kind words, support, and confidence, now, and throughout the entirety of our existence.
Today is a particularly sad one… But the New Paltz Climbing CoOperative represents so much more than anything destroyed in today’s horrible fire.
I’ll be taking the rest of the day off…
Tomorrow… We start again.”

There is no word yet on whether the co-op will re-build.
