A Watervliet man has lost everything after fire raced through his 6th Avenue home Thursday afternoon. NewsChannel 13 was the only news team to talk with James Dugan, who says he’s thankful he escaped with his life. This was a very active fire. Multiple agencies were on the scene. The fire chief says the heat made things worse, but there was a brief moment of relief when it started to rain. After the rain, you could see the firemen watering both sides of the building, just to keep the fire from spreading. Dugan and his granddaughter were able to escape with no injuries. He says they grabbed as much as they could before things got worse. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
