Warming hut destroyed at Bedford paddle tennis courts

Firefighters battled an intense blaze at the Bedford Hills Golf and Tennis Club this morning, containing the inferno before it reached a nearby propane tank.

A fire in the warming hut alongside the paddle tennis courts was reported around 9 a.m., and firefighters say that the hut was engulfed by flames as soon as they arrived.

Firefighters say they rushed to contain the fire after learning that there was a 1,000-gallon propane tank underneath the hut. Investigators are still working to determine how the fire began.
