There was a small fire at an abandoned school in Chenango Forks this morning.
Broome County Sheriffs believe a homeless person may have lit a campfire in the former Charlotte Kenyon Elementary school auditorium.
Workers putting up a fence behind the school noticed smoke.
Sheriff's Deputies and State Police searched for the person who lit the fire but were unable to find anyone.
The fire caused minor damage to the already dilapidated building.
The school was sold in 2001 to a company that planned to make it into senior apartments.
State Police are still investigating.
