FISHKILL, N.Y. -- As local, county, state and federal officials continue to investigate Monday's massive fire at a Gap warehouse in Fishkill, company leaders are focusing on getting employees back to work by Labor Day while looking around Dutchess County for a temporary facility, according to The Poughkeepsie Journal.

Monday's fire gutted one of the buidings at the distribution center off Interstate 84 near Route 9, but company leaders are working to clean up another building to prepare for business, reported The Poughkeepsie Journal. They also are working with Dutchess County officials to find a temporary facility close to the Fishkill facility to minimize disruption to the 1,300 employees, The Poughkeepsie Journal said.

More than 20 fire departments from the region had to respond to the fire late Monday, and employees were all evacuated, according to The Poughkeepsie Journal. Leaders for Gap, one of the largest employers in the area, announced plans prior to the fire to add more employees and make improvements to the Fishkill facility, The Poughkeepsie Journal reported.
