Binghamton Police Seek Suspects In Titchener Fires

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Investigators have been trying to find those responsible for setting at least three small fires in an abandoned First Ward factory.

Binghamton police detective Captain Jack Collins says no arrests have been made in connection with the series of arson incidents at the former E.H. Titchener and Company property at 67 Clinton Street.

Firefighters extinguished a blaze set by someone who ignited a pile of papers inside the old structure, which is located just west of Murray Street.

Similar fires were reported at the site in March and June. None of the fires caused injuries.

City fire officials say the factory complex had been taken over by Broome County for nonpayment of taxes.

Police and fire officials, as well as nearby residents, have expressed concern about the potential safety hazards associated with the site.

The property is located directly across the street from the Binghamton Boys and Girls Club.

Binghamton detectives have been investigating other arson cases in the First Ward, including a June fire that ripped through the old Lincoln Hotel on Clinton Street.
