Manhattan high-rise fire injures 24, including young girl, firefighters

The fire broke out on the 3rd floor of 515 West 59 Street near 10 Avenue and spread to the floor above, the FDNY said.

One of Santoro's friends ran out into the hallway, "and saw the smoke". Three of those hurt were firefighters, authorities said. They also said that a smoke alarm was present "but not operational".

FDNY Chief of Department James Leonard took the opportunity to remind residents of fireproof high-rise building that, unless the fire is in their own apartment, it is usually best to stay in their units and cover the doors with towels and stay on the phone with 911. "No way I could see anything, so I went back into my apartment".

Of the 20 civilian injuries, 14 were minor and 6 were serious, according to the FDNY. Neighbors performed CPR and firefighters carried the girl down 21 flights of stairs. Six other other were listed in serious condition, officials said. The building is used in part to house medical residents and doctors affiliated with Mount Sinai St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital. A spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio said he had spoken to the hospitalized, injured firefighter who "was in good spirits".

A police helicopter monitored the safety of nine people who had fled to the building's roof, and who later made it out of the building safely.

A final search of the building found a number of people sheltered in place.
