FDNY officials say the fire was caused by a gas explosion on the roof of a 16-story building on Seventh Avenue and 39th Streets. It quickly grew to two alarms, and over 140 firefighters were called in to put out the blaze.

Firefighters responding to the scene reported no injuries.

Well, the fire was going before the explosioni, but there were no deaths or injuries, fortunately.
