The fire broke out on the mezzanine level of the Graybar Building, directly above the train terminal, at about 9:30am local time (2.30pm GMT).

Sprinkler systems have extinguished the fire, according to officials, but the smoke could not be contained and the station has been evacuated as a result.

Around 85 firefighters are believed to be at the scene and images on social media reveal chaotic scenes in central Manhattan.

Three minor injuries have been reported.
