Fire officials say extensive damage was caused to the Beer Depot portion of the business.

Authorities say they were called to the scene of the iconic liquor store near the Endicott Johnson Worker’s Arch at 12:40 a.m. June 17. Fire crews spent about three hours battling the blaze with most units leaving the scene at around 3:30. There were no injuries.

At least one fire unit was expected to remain on the scene through the morning along with City Police.

Lanes has been a main stay of the far west side of Binghamton for over 30 years and had, for many years, also housed a small deli.
