Firefighters from the Vestal Fire Department responded to a fire Saturday at the Quality Inn across from the Binghamton University campus.

The fire burned in a single room of the 4105 Vestal Parkway East hotel, which has 142 rooms in all.

Assistant Fire Chief Douglas Rose said the Vestal Fire Department received the call at around 4:10 p.m., just after the beginning of check-in time, and that there was no one in the room when firefighters arrived.

“Everyone was out when we went through,” he said.

There were no reported injuries in connection with the fire, and all of the guests were allowed to remain in the hotel the night following the fire, according to a report from the Press & Sun-Bulletin.

Though the call was received around 4:10, it was not immediately clear when or even how the fire started. Firefighters encountered heavy smoke as they entered the building, and they searched the building for other possible sources of fire.

Officials and workers at the hotel declined to comment.

The Press & Sun-Bulletin reported that the fire was extinguished within minutes, and that the hotel sustained smoke and water damage in the area around the fire.

At least six fire trucks were on the scene, and many of them stayed well after the fire was extinguished. According to the Press & Sun-Bulletin, the Endwell and West Corners Fire Departments provided assistance.
