Authorities say two workers got stuck for a time on scaffolding about 20 stories above a lower Manhattan street, but they've been helped safely inside.

The Fire Department of New York was called around 1:10 p.m. Monday to a high-rise that houses federal offices on Broadway and Reade street. The workers were on scaffolding at about the 21st floor.

The Fire Department says the scaffold was level and secure, but an apparent equipment failure was keeping the workers from being able to get off the scaffold.

Firefighters helped the workers into the building. No injuries were reported, but the workers were being evaluated to make sure.

Multiple fire trucks converged on the scene, and federal Department of Homeland Security police taped off the busy block. It's near City Hall.
