New, 5 comments

A fire started this afternoon at The Avery, a luxury condo building on the Upper West Side that's part of the Riverside South (aka Trump Place) development.

According to Gothamist, the blaze broke out on a 21st floor terrace at around 12:20. The FDNY says that the fire has been contained, though one person is being treated for injuries.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but given the fact that it started on a terrace, it seems likely that it's grill-related. [UPDATE:The Daily News reports that the fire was sparked by plastic burning on a hot tub on the terrace.]
