Fire in NYC Macy's

New York (AP) - Firefighters have put out a blaze at the Macy's flagship store in New York City.

The New York Fire Department said in a Twitter post at about 9:30 p.m. Friday that the two-alarm fire burning in the basement of the iconic department store on 34th Street in Manhattan was under control.

Fire officials did not respond to repeated calls for more details. A spokeswoman for Macy's said people in the building were moved out of harm's way.

More than a dozen fire trucks responded to the scene. A stretch of sidewalk on Seventh Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets was shut down on the west side of the store and crowds of onlookers had gathered to watch.

The well-known department store has over 1 million square-feet of retail space.
