Aug. 04, 2017
NEW YORK (AP) — A fire that apparently began in equipment on the street has caused smoke to waft outside Grand Central Terminal.
The Fire Department of New York says it appears the fire started in a portable compressor at around 11:30 a.m. Friday on an elevated street next to the terminal.
No injuries were reported. The fire was extinguished about 45 minutes later.
Online video shows firefighters putting out orange flames as gray smoke rose over their heads.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the smoke did not get inside the landmark building.
