The FDNY responded to a two-alarm fire at New York University Langone Medical Center’s Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion in Manhattan on Wednesday, the department confirmed on Twitter.

The fire was reportedly contained within an hour, but it remains unclear what started the blaze, NBC 4 New York reported. No injuries were reported, NYU said.

The New York City Emergency Management office urged pedestrians to avoid the area, and gave notice of potential traffic delays.

Kimmel Pavilion, located on 30th Street and First Avenue, is under construction NBC 4 New York said.

The 830,000-square-foot building is not currently seeing patients, and isn’t set to open until 2018.
