3 injured after Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan caught fire

The Fire Department of NY says the fire started around 7am Monday at the building that contains President Trump's home and business offices. Three minor injuries are now reported.

Firefighters arrived at the scene in minutes and extinguished the fire, which hadn't spread beyond an HVAC unit on the roof, according to The Washington Post.

Secret Service Agents noticed the smoke billowing from the roof, and called a fire safety official in the lobby, who tracked down the blaze, according to FDNY Assistant Fire Chief Roger Sakowich. In the meantime, social media users are sharing their thoughts about Trump Tower's rooftop inferno.

Trump was not in New York City at the time of the fire.

On 8 January 2018 the web site Neon Nettle - which frequently mixes facts and fabricated claims - published two stories capitalizing on the fire at a Trump Tower building in New York City.

Anushka and Katrina also together appeared on Karan Johar's celebrity-based talk show Koffee With Karan , last year. She tied the knot with Virat in December at a private ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, away from the media glares.

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

The building is the headquarters for the Trump Organization and a residence for President Trump. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

The fire never entered the building, and the situation was brought under control by 8:13 am.

Others expressed their concern for the safety of Trump and those who were in the tower at the time of the incident.
