Had to evacuate the #Hyatt Centric Hotel in #TimesSquare for a reported emergency in the area of the 25th floor. We could smell smoke from 8th floor as we walked the stairs down.

There were a lot of disabled people who had to climb down a lot of stairs, as the smoke spread up through the ventilation system all the way to the top of this building. The smoke also made its way into the hotel air shafts.
