A small fire was quickly contained at 39 Medford Street in the City of Binghamton late Thursday afternoon.
Two people who lived there were not home at the time and no one was injured. Most of the damage was confined to the top floor of the two story wood frame home.
The assistant fire chief says it could have spread quickly, if one of the residents hadn't done something.
"For one thing, I could tell you if the bedroom door had been left open, the whole second floor of the house would have been on fire. So, the fact the door was closed, made all the difference," said Steve Faughnan, assistant chief.
The investigation into the cause of the fire is under investigation.
