Motorists are advised to find an alternate route around Front Street between Riverside Drive and Main Street and firefighters are called to the scene of a two-alarm fire at 74 Front Street.

The building in question appears to be a multi-family home directly across the street from a parking garage between Binghamton High School and the former Ramada Inn.
