Blaze at NY landmark Equitable Building hurts 8 firefighters By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A fire at a New York City landmark building has injured eight firefighters.

Dozens of fire trucks and 100 firefighters were on the street near the 40-story Equitable Building in Manhattan on Friday.

The property is listed as a National Historic Landmark because of its significance as the headquarters of "one of the insurance industry's earliest leaders."

The building's website lists the state attorney general's office and the Bank of New York as tenants.

Firefighters broke windows of the building before getting the fire under control.

The fire was on the 28th floor of the building, which is next to the park where Occupy Wall Street demonstrators have been protesting corporate greed. The fire department says there doesn't appear to be any connection between the fire and the protest.
