UPPER WEST SIDE — Firefighters battled a blaze in an Upper West Side apartment Monday, officials said.
A dozen FDNY units raced to the third floor unit at 244 W. 72nd St., between West End Avenue and Broadway, just before 8 a.m. to fight the fire, officials said.
The fire was contained inside the apartment, whose lone occupant escaped without injury, said Deputy Fire Chief Dan Donoghue.
There were, however, smoke conditions on the upper floors, Donoghue said.
"It appears to be electrical, but the fire marshals are investigating now," Donoghue said.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze at 8:24 a.m. No one in the five-story residential building was injured, an FDNY spokesman said.
The apartment has since been reopened to residents.
