NEW YORK — Firefighters are battling a fire in the loading dock of a luxury New York City condo tow

NEW YORK — Firefighters are battling a fire in 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.

A department spokesman says the fire is contained in the loading dock and no injuries have been reported.

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

A crane atop the building collapsed in high winds 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.
