More than a dozen people were hurt after a fire ripped through a Manhattan high rise building early Saturday morning.
The fire broke out shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday on the Upper East Side.
Amateur video taken by a viewer showed the flames shooting out of a 12th floor window.
It took firefighters more than an hour to control the fire.
Officials say 19 people, including nine firefighters, were treated at local hospitals, although none of the injuries were believed to be serious.
The cause of the fire is still unknown.
