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.
