- A fire in the heating and air conditioning system on top of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan Monday morning injured three people. The fire is reportedly under control and no injuries or loss of life have been reported.

Footage of the incident shows around a dozen firefighters on the roof of the tower, while white smoke billows from one corner of the top of the building. The president maintains a penthouse condominium in Trump Tower.

The fire department is on the scene, the police spokesman said.

Initial reports had suggested that there were no injuries, however, later reports said that two people were injured and one of them was critical. Fire officials said the fire was contained to the roof and never entered the building. Sakowich said all the smoke and steam was a result of the cold weather.

The Manhattan high rise that bears his name houses President Trump and his family.

President Donald Trump was not at the high-rise at the time of the fire. The fire department was called shortly before 7 a.m. NY time, reportedly by Secret Service agents.

Eric Trump tweeted "There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower".

Trump's wife, Melania, and young son Barron lived in Trump Tower through the first few months of Trump's presidency, but the family moved into the White House in June a year ago. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"
