Items placed too close to a sauna caused a small fire Wednesday at the Park Avenue building that has been dubbed "the world's richest apartment building," according to fire officials in New York City.
Fire marshals also said the fire at 740 Park Avenue, near East 72nd Street, was accidental. 
FNDY crews were called to the small blaze about 3 p.m. Wednesday and quickly snuffed out the flames. The building sustained minor damage and no injuries were reported. 
The Manhattan building has been dubbed "the world's richest apartment building," according to a book chronicling the history of the building and its wealthy residents over the years, including families of and connected to the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers and the Chryslers. 
Jackie Onassis' childhood apartment was also in the building, on the sixth and seventh floors, according to the New York Post. It was last listed for $44 million in 2014.
