Fire in Lower East Side High-Rise Hurts One

A fire broke out in a high-rise building near the FDR Drive early Friday, officials said.

The blaze started in a first-floor apartment at 475 FDR Drive about 1 a.m., FDNY officials said.

One person suffered a minor injury, but was not taken to a hospital.

The single-alarm fire in the 21-story building was under control about 30 minutes later, officials said.

The cause was not immediately known.
