A fire broke out in the basement of the Fox News building on Sunday night, the Washington Examiner reported.
Firefighters responded to a call about flames in the basement trash compactor room around 9:30 p.m. One person was injured, but refused medical assistance according to the New York Fire Department. Neither their identity nor the extent of their injuries were revealed.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Fox has not released a statement on their believed cause of the fire or the identity of the victim, as of this writing.
This is the second fire in two weeks suffered at the Fox News building in New York. On Dec. 8, the Christmas tree outside of the building was set ablaze in the middle of the night.
Craig Tamanaha, 49, was arrested and charged with several crimes, including arson, criminal mischief and trespassing, according to the New York City Police Department.
There was no statement released explaining Tamanaha’s motivations. No one was injured by the fire and the tree was replaced on Dec 9.
