No injuries are reported after a two-alarm fire damaged a home in Conklin early in the morning November 23.  

Firefighters from over a half dozen departments, including over the border from Hallstead, Pennsylvania, were called to the single-family home at 19 June Street at 3:01 a.m. Wednesday. The call for a second alarm was issued at 3:12 a.m. 

The fire, which had been reported as starting in a bedroom, was knocked down and the fire departments were cleaning up at the scene at about 3:40 a.m. and looking through the structure for any lingering hot spots or areas where fire had gotten into the walls.

There were no reports of injuries.  There was not information available about how many people were living at the home.

The house is a three-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath split-level Colonial-style home located about halfway on June Street between Conklin Road and Midway Drive.

Firefighters from Conklin, Windsor, West Windsor, Town of Binghamton, West Colesville and Hallstead, Pennsylvania along with Broome Ambulance responded to the 3 a.m. fire.

That fire was said to have started in the living room of the home.
