NYC Skyscraper Fire: Two Firefighters Critically Injured
A bank building overlooking New York's Ground Zero site caught fire Saturday, sending black smoke billowing across the skyline where the Twin Towers once stood.
The blaze occurred when scaffolding caught fire on the former Deutsche Bank building, fire battalion chief Wes Schelling told AFP at the scene.
Firefighters put out the blaze but smoke continued to rise for several hours, appearing thickest around the 15th floor of the 40-story building.
The fire service could not confirm whether the blaze had caused any injuries.
The skyscraper was under construction after being pulled down following the extremist attacks of September 11, 2001, Schelling said.
Those airplane attacks destroyed the 110-story towers of the World Trade Center which once stood on the site at the southern tip of Manhattan island.
