Fire breaks out overnight in Lansingburgh. Fire officials believe it was intentionally set.

The home in the area of 115th Street and Second avenue went up in flames around two o'clock Sunday morning. Firefighters say flames were shooting through the roof and they spread to a second building.

"Both buildings are vacant. at this time the fires are suspicious. there's no electric or gas hookup to each one of these buildings. The cold weather, cold temperatures, you know, we got water frozen in the streets. It made it hard," Fire Chief Tom Garrett

No word if the fire is connected to a rash of suspicious fires which broke out in the Collar City this past summer.
