A fire broke out on an electronic billboard in New York's Times Square on May 18. Firefighters responded at about 3 p.m. EST, according to CNN.com, to reports of the fire at the 3 Times Square building, also known as the Thomson Reuters building.
The sign, which covers approximately four floors of the building, was "de-energized" after firefighters responded, a New York City Fire Department spokesperson said. No injuries were reported and it was unclear what caused the fire.
