New York City fire officials say a fire in Trump Tower’s heating and air conditioning system injured two people and caused smoke to billow from the roof.
The Fire Department of New York said the fire started at around 7 a.m. ET Monday at the building, which contains U.S. President Donald Trump’s home and business offices.

The president’s son Eric tweeted his thanks to firefighters for doing “an incredible job.”
There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower. The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job. The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most sincere thanks and praise! https://t.co/xuTmq1GBbj
