Investigating The Cause of Park Ave Fire

A Wednesday night house fire at 106 Park Avenue on Binghamton’s south side remains under investigation.

Robert Gardepe has lived next door at 104 Park Ave for about a year.

He said he called 9-1-1 after seeing flames shooting out of the second story window shortly after 7 p.m.

That was the second call he made about the house-next-door that day.

About four hours earlier, Gardepe said he called Binghamton police after seeing three teenagers outside the home.

Binghamton Detective Lieutenant Cory Minor confirmed police are working with the Binghamton Fire Marshall on the investigation.

By 8 p.m. 106 Park was fully engulfed in flames.

Gardepe and nearby residents were told to leave their homes. NYSEG had also shut off power for about 45 minutes.

Portions of Park Avenue were closed off until after 11:30 p.m.
