Space Heater Causes A Fire in Binghamton

No one was injured after a small fire broke out in a Binghamton apartment
this afternoon.

The Binghamton Fire Department was called to 26 North Street just after 3 p.m. for reports of the blaze on the second floor of the building. The cause? A space heater.

A Binghamton Fire Captain offered this advice for space heater safety.

Binghamton Fire Captain Tim Duhael says, "Don't put anything combustible near a space heater."

According to the Captain, flammable items were placed near and on top of the heater.
