    A firefighter suffered minor injuries battling a fire in Manhattan early Wednesday morning, fire officials said.

    The fire broke out at 581 Third Ave. in the Murray Hill neighborhood just before midnight.

    The first and second floors of the five-story, mixed-occupancy building were in flames when firefighters arrived. A Subway sandwich shop and a sushi restaurant are among the tenants at the address.

    Video shows at least five fire trucks and several ambulances at the scene. Two ladder trucks had their ladders extended into the building. 

    No other injuries were reported and everyone is believed to have gotten out safely.

    Fire officials anticipated that the fire would be completely out by 1:30 a.m.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
