Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Multiple crews responded to a two-alarm building fire on the city's west side.

It's the former All Around Building Supply Center. The call came over dispatch just before 9:30 a.m.. The Binghamton Fire Department immediately took a "defensive" stance on the fire.

Glenwood Avenue between Main and Clinton streets have been shut down.

This is the forth fire this building has seen since 2012. Two of those fires were ruled as arson. Crews did not find a cause for the fire in 2013.

The Binghamton Fire Department said crews will be on scene throughout the day.

"We will interview some of the firemen to find out the area of origin. We know where in the building we think the fire started and we'll go in there and dig out that area to see what we have. See if there is any evidence," Binghamton Fire Marshal Daniel Eggleston said.

The cause is still under investigation, however fire officials say it's a strong possibility this fire could also be ruled as arson.
