A Wappingers Falls fire on Main Street commercial district that broke out on June 3, 2017 required several Dutchess County fire departments to control the blaze.

As reported by the Poughkeepsie Journal:

A structure fire broke out in a row of business along East Main Street Saturday, sending plumes of dark smoke into the sky and causing “extensive damage” to the building, according to Police Commissioner Carl Calabrese.

Adam Van Tassel, first assistant fire chief for the William T. Garner fire department in Wappingers Falls, said the damage will likely result in a “total loss for three out of the five” sections of the building.

In consideration of the extensive damage sustained by the building, Affiliated Adjustment Group was retained by the policyholder to handle all aspects of the claim. The owner of this building also operates a successful dental practice out of the upper two floors, with this added wrinkle it was vital that the policyholder take advantage of AAG’s full suite of resources in order to not only maximize all areas of recovery, but to also prepare for the upcoming need to begin operations out of a temporary location.

AAG’s suite of claim services includes the preparation and presentation of building, business personal property, business income, extra expense and code upgrade claims. AAG’s proprietary approach to claims handling is complemented by our staff and strategic partners, consisting of forensic accountants, coverage counsel, building consultants, engineers, architects, expeditors, inventory appraisers and emergency service providers.

Said Matthew Dickson, Associate, Affiliated Adjustment Group: “Whenever we have a loss like the one here in Wappinger Falls that not only affects an individual business and property owner, but the landscape and focal point of an entire town, we are extremely honored to be part of the recovery process.
