NEW YORK (AP) - Firefighters spent over 3½ hours getting an early-morning blaze under control at a diner in New York City’s Times Square.

Three people, including two firefighters, suffered minor injuries.

The blaze was reported around 5 a.m. Tuesday at the TSQ Brasserie on Seventh Avenue, in the Theater District between 48th and 49th streets.

The restaurant was closed at the time.

Officials say it apparently started in duct work and caused minor damage to neighboring buildings.
