NEW YORK, N.Y. - Officials are reporting a fire on the 88th floor of 1 World Trade Center in New York.
The fire department says the fire was reported shortly before 8 a.m. They say emergency personnel are on the scene.
The fire at One World Trade Center began just as rush hour got underway, but was quickly tamed, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department told AFP.
"It's near under control," the spokesman said less an hour after the emergency started.
A total of 84 firefighters from 26 units were dispatched to the glimmering, glass-clad tower which rises to 104 floors. There were no injuries.
FDNY Battalion Chief Kevin Brennan says welding equipment on the floor caught fire just before 7:45 a.m. The fire was contained to the equipment and did not spread to the walls or floor, Brennan said.
