Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- An early morning fire at a Manhattan apartment building owned by Equity Residential injured 11 people, including one firefighter.

The New York City Fire Department responded at 5:03 a.m. to a blaze at the 42-story Trump Place apartments at 180 Riverside Blvd. on the Upper West Side, Jim Long, director of public information for the Fire Department, said in an interview.

The fire was on the third floor of the building, in apartment 3V, according to Long. Ten people had minor injuries, and another was transported to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in serious condition, he said.

“The cause is not known at this time,” Long said. “The marshals are investigating.”

Equity Residential is the largest publicly-traded apartment owner in the U.S. It owns 15 multifamily properties in Manhattan, including three Trump Place Buildings on Riverside Boulevard, according to the Chicago-based company’s website.

Marty McKenna, an Equity Residential spokesman, did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
