(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.
