Witness Kirby Gargantiel says he saw thick black smoke near the six-story midtown Manhattan building. A photo on Twitter shows flames shooting from the roof.

A fire department spokesman says the flames likely came from a vent.

City officials warn of traffic delays in the area. Transit officials are rerouting 11 bus lines.

Records show the building has kitchens in the basement and on the fourth floor. A dining area occupies the first through third floors, and offices are on the fifth and sixth.
