FINANCIAL DISTRICT, NY — A fire a The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog in the city's Financial District has left one firefighter hurt. Firefighters were called to 30 Water Street around 7:30 a.m. Sunday for a report of a fire. They arrived at the scene within minutes, a spokesman for the agency told Patch.

The two-alarm blaze was placed under control within a few hours. One firefighter suffered a minor injury and was sent to a hospital.

The blaze appeared to be throughout the building in the ducts, a fire spokesman told Patch. There was a small amount of damage to the walls but the fire was mostly contained to the ductwork, he said.

"The fire is under investigation because the cause wasn't readily determined," a spokesman told Patch.

Photos and video showed at least three fire trucks at the scene.
