Firefighters responded Thursday to a 2-alarm fire in New York's Manhattan borough, in the city's dense Soho neighborhood, as a blaze broke out in an apartment building.

Over 100 firefighters and 25 units were able to extinguish the flames but remained afterward at the scene operating to finish work, ABC 7 NY reported.

Four firefighters had to be taken to the hospital but had non-life threatening injuries at the time.

Smoke could be seen billowing out of windows in the six-story building.

First responders shared images of the scene on social media.
