Take-Two NYC office hit by fire

Well, 'burnt by fire' presumably.

Publisher Take-Two has suffered damage to the headquarters of its sports and value software subsidiaries, following a massive five-alarm building fire in New York at the weekend.

According to a CBS online report, the fire started late Saturday night in the 575 Broadway building, and Take-Two's third-floor offices were directly in the path of the blaze. The building also houses "retail stores American Eagle Outfitters and Prada, as well as numerous offices for businesses, such as Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, the Guggenheim Museum and Antiques Magazine," the report stated.

FDNY Chief of Operations told ABC News that the fire "got up into some duct work on the first floor and travelled up to the fourth floor" in a building which has been renovated many times, causing difficulty in tracing pockets of fire for the attending services. An evacuation of the rear of the building, which houses the Lure Fish Bar restaurant was undertaken, and six fire-fighters and one civilian received minor injuries.

The cause of the fire is still unknown at present, as is the extent of the damage to local businesses, including Take-Two's office. Local Take-Two representatives were unable to provide any additional information or official comment at the time of writing, but stated that an official update would be forthcoming as soon as the full details could be ascertained.
