Two hundred firefighters battled an enormous fire that broke out in a downtown Manhattan building on Wednesday night. It took them over three hours to get the fire under control—"The members made a very aggressive interior attack to stop this fire," said Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro. The fire broke out at 60 East 9th Street around 5:45 p.m. The apartment building, known as The Hamilton, occupies a large part of the block, and houses hundreds of apartments. Five firefighters sustained injuries, and officials stated that "most of the 212 units sustained at least some water damage, but everyone got out safely."
