Fire in NY Chinatown Building Injures 14

At least 14 people were injured in a blaze in Chinatown that reached seven-alarm status shortly after midnight Monday morning.

More than 250 firefighters and more than 60 Fire Department vehicles responded to the borough-wide call, descending on the six-story building at 285 Grand Street, a residential building anchored by a storefront.

Flames burst 20 to 30 feet from the roof. Three ladders had been put up against the building, and a few dozen firefighters waited to be sent in, five at a time. Hundreds of people stopped to watch the blaze on the cool spring night, New York Times reported.

Officials say the fire started on the first floor of the mixed residential and commercial building and spread through a shaft to the roof before affecting two others buildings. More than 250 firefighters battled the blaze that was declared under control at 2:20 a.m. Monday.

Officials say the Red Cross is helping the 50 to 60 families that were displaced, according to The Associated Press.
