Binghamton Midtown Mall Building Fire

The first call came in around 9:45 pm Tuesday night on 12/21/10 for the Binghamton Midtown Mall building fire at 17 Chenango Street in Binghamton, New York. Flames could be seen coming from the fifth floor of building.

The Midtown Mall building is n the heart of the city, and the late Tuesday night fire consumed and sent smoke billowing into the bitter cold night sky downtown area. Firefighters from the Binghamton, Johnson City, Endicott, and Vestal fire departments all responded to battle the fire.

The Midtown Mall building on the corner of Court and Chenango streets was under construction as part of a larger effort to revitalize downtown.

Binghamton City Fire Chief Thomas says no injuries have been reported. Binghamton's City Fire Marshal Dan Eggleston said Wednesday that "nothing looks suspicious," although the investigation is continuing.

The Midtown Mall was the most severely damaged building downtown, but nearby businesses also felt the heat and water of the fire fighting operation to bring under control and extinguish the fire.
