BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: There's been a terrible fire in the Catskill Mountains of New York state , 85 miles away from New York City , the loss of property made even worse considering it's a piece film history in its own right. While most recently it was condos, it opened during World War II as the old Brown's Hotel . Considered a classic Catskill resort, it was the inspiration for the movie " Dirty Dancing ." It took 40 fire companies many hours to get control of that fire.
