An electrical fire in the basement of Macy's Herald Square sparked an evacuation of the store's flagship location.

The evacuation is just a precautionary measure, and fire authorities say no injuries have been reported.

FDNY officials describe the blaze as a sub-basement electrical vault fire. Power had to be cut while fire authorities investigated.

Authorities had the flames under control by 1:15 p.m.

No further details were immediately available.
