The Fire Department of NY says the fire started around 7 a.m. Monday at the building that contains President Donald Trump's home and business offices.
A fire broke out on the roof of the Trump Tower in New York City this morning that involved an electrical box, the fire department said.
President Donald Trump has a residence and offices in the tower but he was at the White House in Washington at the time of the fire.
One person sustained a serious, possibly life-threatening injury while another had a minor injury, the Fire Department said.
There were no immediate reports of injuries. The department said a fire started around 7 a.m. Monday in the heating and air conditioning system of the building.
Aerial views showed firefighters on the roof, with smoke billowing from one corner of the high-rise, which was completed in 1983 as the business headquarters of now-President Donald Trump.
Around 80 firefighters responded to the blaze with a few remaining on the roof roughly an hour afterwards.
"'The fire wasn't in the building, it was on top of the building".
"We had flames coming out of the vents".
Sakowich went on to say that the FDNY was able to "extinguish the fire without any problems" and that their entire response plan went smoothly. They said that after the investigation is finalised the results would be publically released.
"There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower", the president's son Eric wrote on Twitter.
