Building Fire Forces Evacuations In Morningside Heights

A three-alarm fire in upper Manhattan burned through a large building early Sunday.

The fire started around 2:30 in a vacant seven story building on Morningside Avenue at West 122nd Street in Morningside Heights.

The fire appears to have started in the basement and then spread to the roof, officials said.

Residents in the building next door to the fire were evacuated.

More than 130 firefighters responded to the blaze.
