Small fire breaks out at Trump Tower in New York City

- 05.17

Firefighters in New York responded Monday morning to a small fire on the roof of Trump Tower, the Manhattan skyscraper where President Donald Trump keeps an apartment, according to a New York Daily News report.

Trump was in Washington, not New York, at the time of the fire, having spent the bulk of last weekend at Camp David. News of the fire was also reported by NBC’s “Today” show and ABC News.

The Daily News reported that the fire was quickly handled by firefighters, who continue to examine the scene to ensure the fire did not spread. There were no immediately reported injuries and no immediate word as to the cause of the fire.

In addition to Trump’s personal triplex apartment, the president’s campaign and transition offices were also housed in Trump Tower, as is the office he used as the head of the Trump Organization.
