Six people injured when camera catches fire at 30 Rockefeller Plaza
(Reuters) - Six people suffered minor burns when a camera caught fire on the observation deck of the New York landmark building, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, fire officials said.
Five adults refused treatment while a child was taken to an area hospital and remains in stable condition, according to the New York City Fire Department.
The cause of the fire, which happened at 7:45 p.m. local time, was under investigation.
