2 Injured In Rooftop Fire At Trump Tower In NYC [VIDEO]

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 FDNY says the fire started around 7 a.m. Monday at the building that contains President Donald Trump’s home and business offices.

No evacuations were ordered. Trump was at the White House when the fire broke out.

Fire officials say a civilian was treated for serious injuries and a firefighter was treated for minor injuries. It took about an hour to put out the fire on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
