Lincoln Hotel Fire Becomes Criminal Investigation

The fire that destroyed the Lincoln Hotel on Clinton Street Thursday has now become a criminal investigation.

The Binghamton Fire Marshall says the cause of the fire was incendiary, and that someone started the fire.

Binghamton Police are now investigating. The building was a landmark in the city, serving as a boarding house in the early 1900s before becoming a bar after prohibition.

No one was injured in last week's fire, but a vacant property behind the building had to be demolished.
