LANSINGBURGH, N.Y. – Officials are working to uncover what ignited a blaze in a vacant building in Lansingburgh Sunday.
According to the Troy City Fire Department they received a call around 2:30a.m Sunday morning for a heavily involved fire on First Avenue between 112th and 113th Streets.
Crews say they worked on knocking down the fire for hours from the outside of the building due to safety issues.
"These vacant buildings are really dangerous for us; the collapse makes it pretty obvious. The wall with no warning, just gave out,” said Troy City Fire Chief, Tom Garrett.
Sunday's fire is in the same area where a string of suspicious fire broke out last month.
In last month's strand of suspicious fire police and firefighters responded to six different fires in the city in one morning.
Authorities ask residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
No arrests have been made connection to last month's or Sunday's fire.
Officials have not stated these cases are related, but are similar in nature.
