Binghamton fire investigators are looking into the cause of a fire at a single family house on the east side October 30.

Officials say the blaze on English Street was reported at 12:55 a.m.

The couple living in the home and their pets escaped without injury.

The Fire Marshall’s office says it appears the blaze started in the basement area and damage was confined to the basement and a first floor living room.

The Southern Tier Chapter of the American Red Cross assisted the couple overnight.
