NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The FDNY responded to a two-alarm fire Monday night at the future home of Google in Lower Manhattan, filling the Hudson Square neighborhood with hazy smoke and a strong smoke odor.

Firefighters, EMS workers and police officers were seen responding the scene, at 550 Washington Street, before 6:30 p.m. About an hour later, the FDNY said the fire was under control.

The fire broke on the roof, according to the FDNY.

Google is leasing 1.3 million square feet at the building, St. John's Terminal, as part of its Hudson Square campus. Construction is reportedly expected to be completed by 2022.
