Six people were unexpectedly injured during a spontaneous fire on the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at New York City's Rockefeller Center on Sunday night. The deck is a popular stop for tourists.

"A camera on an elevated part of the observation deck caught fire, sending embers falling onto people below, New York City Fire Department spokesman Khalid Baylor said," reports CNN. "The fire took place at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, which houses the headquarters of NBC." The building is also popularly known as "30 Rock," and many NBC shows are shot there.

One child was transported to New York Presbyterian Hospital with minor burns, while five adults who were all injured to the same degree declined medical treatment for themselves.
