Due to the fire at times square evacuated 120 people

On Monday night, firefighters and police partially evacuated in connection with the fire of the Viacom office building, located on a busy section of times Square. The source of ignition was inside the Parking lot on the corner of 45th street and 7th Avenue. Because it adjoins the 45-storey business center, 120 workers were forced to leave the premises.

The fire broke out around 16:30 in a warehouse Parking lot, and an hour later the disaster has been brought under control. The witnesses managed to capture the scene at least 10 fire trucks and police teams.
