BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- An early morning fire at a home on Livingston Street in Binghamton is ruled suspicious.

The fire started right around 3:00 a.m, which was just a few hours after two other fires in the city.

One was on Tudor Street, the other on Susquehanna Street.

All three were vacant.

Officials are now investigating whether the three were linked, but believe they're all suspicious.

The two adjacent homes on Livingston Street were forced to evacuate.

One neighbor we spoke with described waking up to a loud sound and seeing what she called an "inferno" outside her window.

"It was terrifying, said neighbor Lindsey Graham. "There were embers falling on the roof, bright red embers. We're lucky we made it out alive. We're lucky we made it out alive."

The neighbors who were evacuated have been able to return to their homes.
