NEW YORK (AP) - Fire has damaged the loading dock of a luxury New York City condo tower where a crane collapsed during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

The Fire Department says the fire at the 75-story building was reported just before 9 p.m. Saturday.

It was under control a little more than an hour later.

No injuries were reported.

Witnesses said scaffolding at the building and another building also caught fire.

The West 57th Street tower is scheduled to open later this year.

A crane atop the building collapsed during Superstorm Sandy and dangled precariously.

Residents on either side of the building were evacuated for several days.

The building called One57 will be the tallest residential building in New York when it opens.

Some full-floor apartments have reportedly sold for more than $90 million.
