Firefighter among 3 injured in Trump Tower rooftop fire Secret Service spotted

Prime Minister Theresa May during talks with US President Donald Trump

A fire that broke out on the roof of Trump Tower in NY has been contained, firefighters have said.

Initial reports had suggested that there were no injuries, however, later reports said that two people were injured and one of them was critical. It took about an hour to put out the fire at the building, which is located on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Eric Trump, the President's son and an executive vice president at the Trump Organization, has confirmed that the roofing cooling tower caught fire.

The fire department reported that the blaze burned on the roof of the building rather than inside it. Smoke could be seen pouring from the skyscraper's top.

'The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!'

About 84 firefighters attended the scene initially.

ESPN host: 'Trump's af***ing stupid person'
In October the network suspended SC-6 host Jemele Hill for two weeks for calling for fans to boycott Dallas Cowboys advertisers. But Nolan's comments don't technically violate the social media guidelines since they were not delivered on social media.

The US president has spent little time in NY since his inauguration a year ago, but has a private triplex home at the top of Trump Tower.

Trump Tower was also the setting for Trump's reality TV show, "The Apprentice", and the headquarters of his presidential campaign.

No injuries have been reported due to the one-alarm fire, according to the NYPD.
