The fire is on the top floor of a six-story building, the FDNY said.

The fire started on the Harlem building's top floor, which was engulfed in flames as thick smoke billowed.

Heavy smoke and orange flames could be seen pouring through the building's roof, with strong wind making the blaze hard to contain.

The fire broke out at about 3 p.m. on Broadway and West 144th Street in Hamilton Heights.
