A New York Police Department spokesman said authorities received a call about 7:30 a.m. about a one-alarm fire on the roof the Trump building on 5th Avenue.

Dozens of fire vehicles were blocking the entire block in front of the building during rush hour in busy Midtown Manhattan.

His son, Eric Trump tweeted out thanks for first responders.

NPR said two injuries were reported - a firefighter received a minor injury, and a civilian is "suffering from a serious, life-threatening injury".

"We made several announcements to all the tenants in the building to remain in place", said New York Fire Chief Roger Sakowich.




There were no reports of injuries or evacuations as a result of the blaze. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

So far, only one person has been reportedly injured in the fire incident in the building, which houses both residences and businesses.

But smoke continued emanating from a rooftop heating and cooling unit of the 58-story building, fire officials said.

Trump was in Washington on Monday morning, according to his public White House schedule.
