6 Hurt in Rockefeller Center Observation Deck Fire

Six people suffered minor burns Sunday evening when a camera caught fire on the observation deck of the New York landmark building, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, fire officials said.

 

Five adults refused treatment while a child was taken to an area hospital and remains in stable condition, according to the New York City Fire Department.

The cause of the fire, which happened at 7:45 p.m.and was declared under control about 30 minutes later, was under investigation. A fire department spokesman said the injuries were caused by embers from the fire falling onto the victims.

The observation deck, known as the "Top of the Rock", is a popular tourist attraction in the heart of New York City. The 70-story building is home to NBC's news operation and is celebrated in the network's sitcom "30 Rock."

It is also used to shoot TV shows "Saturday Night Live" and the "Today Show."
