The fire that destroyed an abandoned house on Sheridan Street in Auburn Thursday morning has been ruled suspicious.
Fire Chief Joe Morabito tells Finger Lakes News Radio the investigation has been turned over the Auburn Police.
The early morning fire came before Chief Morabito fielded questions about the vacant properties in the city during his budget presentation to Auburn City Council.
Morabito told council members there are 244 properties on the city’s vacant building registry. The home at 37 Sheridan Street will be demolished.
