An electrical fire broke out on the roof of Trump Tower Monday morning, according to a report from NBC's "Today".

The fire department is on the scene, the police spokesman said.

"We had one engineer that got up there with a fire extinguisher and breathed in some of the smoke".

People posted video and images to social media, showing smoke rising from the building, which houses both residences and businesses. He's refused medical treatment. A firefighter suffered a minor injury when debris fell on him. It took about an hour to put out the fire on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. It's a cooling tower on the roof.

Walton disagreed with LaVar's latest criticism of the Lakers coach, whose team has lost 12 of its past 13 games. It is unclear whether the organization will address LaVar Ball's comments as they relate to their head coach.


"We had flames coming out of the vents".

While Trump and the First Family now live in the White House, he maintains a palatial apartment in the 58-story tower.

By 8:16 a.m. the FDNY said the blaze was inside an HVAC system and was "under control".

Two civilians and a firefighter were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, the NY fire department said.
