Two Binghamton House Fires Ruled Accidental

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Investigators have determined the causes of a pair of Binghamton residential fires that were reported within a few minutes of each other.

Fire department Captain Timothy Dahulich says both of Wednesday afternoon’s blazes have been ruled accidental.

The first fire was reported at 53 North Street on the West Side. Dahulich said the blaze started as a result of unattended cooking in a first-floor kitchen.

About ten minutes later, firefighters were sent to a blaze at 144 Broad Avenue on the East Side. Dahulich said that fire was traced to an electrical problem in a lamp in a second-floor living room.

No injuries were reported in either fire.
