Trump Tower fire injures 3

Fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan

The fire started on the roof shortly before 7am in the Fifth Avenue skyscraper, which is President Donald Trump's private home in NY and houses the headquarters of his company, which is run by his two adult sons. Video footage showed several firefighters on the roof while smoke spewed out, Fox news reported.

Trump commissioned architect Der Scutt to create an imposing, dominating structure that the Trump Tower website describes as "a world-famous testament of Mr Trump's grand vision". "Chief Roger Sakowich on the scene of the fire in Trump Tower earlier this morning", the FDNY tweeted.

One firefighter and a civilian were injured, Associated Press reports.

The blaze erupted when empty water storage units caught fire atop the building at 721 Fifth Avenue, according to the New York Post and other local media.

One fire fighter and two bystanders were reportedly injured.

The first story claimed that President Donald Trump was "feared dead" because of the fire on the roof of the building, which is also the President's home in the city. NY time, reportedly by Secret Service agents.

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 past year.

Trump's son, Eric, characterized the blaze as "small", and said it started in a cooling tower.

US President was not present there as he is now in Washington. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!" he posted on micro-blogging site Twitter. Many joked about the building being on fire.
