The cause was not immediately known, and at least two people were under evaluation at a hospital. Television reports said people were trapped inside, but fire officials did not immediately confirm that. Heavy black smoke rose high above the building, wedged between taller structures on 62nd Street between Park and Madison Avenues just a few blocks from Central Park. Damage, including shattered windows, could be seen at one of the adjoining buildings.
