A small fire broke out on the 89th floor of the One World Trade Center building Saturday morning, according to fire officials.

Construction workers at the unfinished tower put out the fire, which started on a wooden deck. The FDNY responded to the fire and said they are wetting down the area as a precaution. 
 
The cause of the fire is unknown, and is being investigated.
 
The skyscraper is already over 1,200 feet high, with a few hundred feet more to go until it reaches its full height.
 
 It is the tallest in New York City, surpassing the Empire State Building in April.
