Cincinnatus, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Investigators are looking into whether an explosion sparked a fire at a home in Cincinnatus.

A call came out about 2 p.m. Thursday for a fire with a possible home explosion at 1522 Telephone Road.

It took fire crews more than a half hour to knock down the flames.

Most of the damage was on the back of the house and the second floor.

Fire officials said putting out the fire was difficult due to excessive amounts of property in the home.

Nobody was home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
