    "Footage posted on social media showed firefighters smashing windows — in the attempt to ventilate the building and rescue those who were still trapped — as residents watched on from the street and nearby rooftops.

    “There’s a really intense fire in a building on Broadway and 8th St by Astor Place in Manhattan,” tweeted Jamie Kimmel.

    The city’s emergency management team urged locals to stay away and warned of possible traffic delays, due to the smoke."
