170 firefighters battle fire in NYC apartment building

A tenant in an upper Manhattan apartment building that went up in flames was missing and feared to be in the burned out building, firefighters said Saturday.

Heavy smoke and orange flames could be seen pouring through the building's roof, with strong wind making the blaze hard to contain.

An investigation is underway after a massive inferno ripped through the top floors of an Upper Manhattan apartment building.

The FDNY said the fire and the water used on the fire have likely caused major damage to the building, which is about 100 years old.

The fire started just after 3 p.m. Friday afternoon and took over 17 hours to place under control.

It was confirmed that over 200 firefighters were tackling the fire.

One person remained unaccounted for, but the building's structure wasn't safe deemed enough for authorities to conduct searches early Saturday morning.
