EAST HARLEM, Manhattan — Firefighters responded to an East Harlem building as a fire that started in the kitchen of a first-floor Chinese restaurant extended into the ductwork of the building, officials said Saturday.

FDNY officials initially checked to see how far the fire had extended in the five-story building, and whether or not it’s reached all floors.

Saturday night, officials said the fire was under control.

One person suffered minor injuries.
