Abandoned: 2011 – Exploring Purgatory House, New Jersey (Short)

YT description: SOUTHAMPTON — The “haunted” Purgatory House is no more.

The vacant property off Route 70 and Purgatory Road, long rumored to be haunted, caught fire Thursday morning and burned to the ground.

The large dwelling already was engulfed when firefighters responded to 9:33 a.m. reports of smoke coming from the dense woods surrounding it, said Tom D’Amico, chief of the Vincentown Fire Company.

Crews doused water on the burning rubble for several hours to keep the fire from spreading to surrounding trees and brush, but D’Amico said there was no way to save the house.

“It was well involved when we got here,” he said. “We weren’t able to do much.”

The cause is under investigation. D’Amico said the house was well-known because of the ghost stories surrounding it.
