MANHATTAN — A fire broke out in a restaurant on Orchard Street next to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum Saturday morning, authorities said.
Firefighters responded to the blaze at 101 Orchard Street, near Delancey Street, about 9:17 a.m., the FDNY said.
The fire started in the first-floor kitchen at the Congee Village restaurant and spread to duct work in the building, fire officials said.
Firefighters battled the blaze from the roof of the fifth-floor building, which sits adjacent to the historic Tenement Museum.
It was not immediately clear if the fire spread to the museum, which recently underwent major renovations.
No injuries were reported, officials added.
