A fire in Harlem in Manhattan, New York City on Friday is burning multiple buildings.

Approximately 100 firefighters are on the scene battling the blaze, PIX-11 reported.

However, working conditions are difficult as the cold weather is freezing the water in the fire hydrants.

The fire has been upgraded to a four-alarm fire.

It has destroyed a church and the salon, Hair & Body Control, that it started in, reported Josh Einiger of ABC.
