TROY, N.Y. – Fire crews worked overnight at a structure fire on King Street in Troy.
Two condemned buildings caught fire around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Troy, and fire crews worked to put out hot spots into early Monday morning.
The buildings were fully engulfed in flames before firefighters arrived. Crews had to fight the blaze from the outside because of unsafe conditions. Placards were on the outside of the buildings warning the crews not to go inside.
Troy City Fire Department Chief Tom Garrett said the fire is suspicious because there is not a reason for a fire to occur.
"There's no reason for a fire that size to get going," he said. "Obviously, the building was set on fire. There is no electricity hooked up to the buildings, there is not gas in there, there is no one living there. There is nothing."
Officials will conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the fire, and the buildings will be torn down late Monday morning.
The buildings were owned by the city and were scheduled to be demolished later this year.
