One New York firefighter and two civilians were injured in a minor fire that broke out on the roof of Trump Tower in Manhattan just before 7 am local time on Monday. Secret Service agents first noticed the fire and alerted New York City fire officials who got up there quickly and put out the blaze in the cooling tower. Flames came out of the vents but fire and smoke did not enter the 68-storey building and none of the residents were evacuated. The president’s son, Eric Trump, thanked firefighters for the massive response and the “incredible job”. President Trump and his family moved out of Trump Tower into the White House in Washington soon after he took office almost one year ago.
