Manhattan Pier on Fire


Manhattan’s Pier 97, located at West 57th St. and 12th Ave., lit up on Saturday afternoon, according to NBC News. Though no injuries were initially reported, the three-alarm fire was being battled by 138 firefighters and a Marine 6 fire boat from the river.

NBC New York has a live-feed, because why not. You can see some smoke as of 4:30 p.m. ET (pictured), but things seem to have been contained.
