The New York Fire Department said that it recieved a call at around 7 am on Monday about a fire on the top floor of the building located in the Midtown area. Video footage showed several firefighters on the roof while smoke spewed out, Fox news reported. The president maintains a penthouse condominium in Trump Tower.

Trump was not in New York City at the time of the fire.

However, two civilians and a firefighter are said to have sustained minor injuries from the blaze, which caused a large plume of dark smoke.

He said: "The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job". Fire officials said the fire was contained to the roof and never entered the building.

President Donald Trump was not at the high-rise at the time of the fire. NY time, reportedly by Secret Service agents. How fitting. A sign from God", one wrote, while another added, "Hope Trump likes all the fire and fury happening on top of his tower right now.

Eric Trump stated on Twitter that the fire was caused by an electrical issue in a cooling tower, and praised the Fire Department's response.

US President was not present there as he is now in Washington. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"
