6 injured when camera catches fire at 30 Rockefeller Plaza
Six people suffered minor burns when a camera caught fire on the observation deck of the New York landmark building, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, fire officials said.
Falling embers from the camera on the 70-floor building in Midtown Manhattan landed on the building’s visitors.
Five adults refused treatment while a child was taken to an local hospital and remains in stable condition, according to the New York City Fire Department. He was released shortly after.
The cause of the fire, which happened at 7:45 p.m. on Sunday was still under investigation.
The observation deck — known as the “Top of the Rock” — is a popular tourist attraction in the heart of New York City. The 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.”
