Three people were injured in a small electrical fire at Trump Tower, where smoke billowed from the rooftop early Monday as emergency crews worked to extinguish the flames.
The Secret Service first spotted the fire and alerted building managers, who called 911 shortly before sunrise, according to New York fire officials. Within about an hour, fire crews had extinguished what an FDNY spokesman called a “quick, easy and routine” blaze on the roof of the luxury building on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
There were no evacuations, the authorities said, but two civilians and a firefighter sustained minor injuries. President Trump, who has a penthouse condominium at Trump Tower, was in Washington on Monday, according to his public schedule.
