NEW YORK (Reuters) - Police evacuated New York's Times Square on Saturday night for what officers at the scene called an "emergency investigation" and dozens of officers blocked access to the busy central Manhattan square.
The square was evacuated shortly after 8 p.m., according to Reuters reporters on the scene. Emergency vehicles were seen clustered at the south end of the square as well as in some streets leading into the area.

Police shut down a block in the heart of Times Square Saturday night after receiving a call about a suspicious car fire, delaying some Broadway shows by more than an hour.
The call came in just after 6:30 and as of 9 p.m., 45th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues had not been opened. When police initially responded, they saw smoke coming out of the car but no fire.
Police said a bomb squad investigation was on the scene and that the car on fire was a sport utility vehicle had license plates that didn't match the make of the car, raising suspicions.
NEW YORK -- Police have closed some streets in New York City's Times Square as they investigate a car that has been "deemed suspicious." Police said Saturday the bomb squad was investigating the contents of the car on 45th Street. They say the block was closed between Seventh and Eighth avenues as a precaution. A webcam at 46th Street and Broadway showed the streets had been cleared of pedestrians. A line of police cars blocked one street. Police say a call of a car fire came in about 6:30 p.m. In December, a van without license plates parked in Times Square led police to block off part of the area for about two hours. A police robot examined the vehicle. Clothes, racks and scarves were found inside
