Smoke from the huge blaze has been spotted as far away as 80 blocks away in Central Park.

A massive fire has been ignited through a six-story building in Hamilton Heights, requiring the need of 100 firefighters for help.

The blaze broke out just after 3pm at a building located at 565 W. 144th Street and Broadway.

The fire appears to have engulfed almost the whole building and smoke can be seen high above the blaze. The fire was still raging 90 minutes later, and has collapsed the roof of the building, which covers a large portion of the city block.
