A fire that broke out in a top-floor apartment of a 27-story building at 70 West 95th Street in the wee hours of the morning Monday resulted in a pretty huge response: 20 units and more than 80 firefighters battled the blaze.
The call came in at 2:42 a.m. and units were on the scene by 2:45, the FDNY told us. The cause is unclear; it’s still under investigation by city fire marshals. The fire was contained within the apartment where it started. That apartment sustained extensive smoke and water damage. The fire was under control by around 3:30 a.m.
Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries at St. Luke’s Hospital, FDNY said.

@westsiderag I went to my balcony and water was coming down the sides and broken glass flying down. Crazy. Last I heard everyone was ok
