Breakneck Ridge which is located in the Town of Fishkill, New York has been dealt with a devastating fire on Monday that at first glance of the pictures, looks like it may have been from the recent fires in Australia.

According to the Town of Fishkill Police Department Facebook Page:

Multiple volunteer Fire departments and Police departments from Dutchess County and Putnam County at the scene of the Breakneck fire in the Town of Fishkill today...unfortunately several vehicles were destroyed but all the hikers came off the mountain safely.
