Binghamton Fire Marshal's have determined the cause of the fire as cooking related.

Around 4:40pm Fox 40 received reports of a house fire at 28 Crestmont Rd in Binghamton.

"We had a full-blown kitchen fire. So we got two lines into the kitchen and we knocked it down pretty quickly," said Binghamton Fire Department Assistant Chief Santoni.

Neighbors say the 61-year-old man lives alone in the house with his cat. The man did not need to go to the hospital. 

Chief Santoni says the kitchen is completely damaged with heavy smoke damage to the entire house.
