President Donald Trump, who owns the building and resides in the penthouse when he is in NY, was in Washington DC at the time of the blaze. The fire is reportedly under control and no injuries or loss of life have been reported.

Some 84 firefighters and medical crews responded as 26 emergency units with lights flashing converged on the crowded midtown Manhattan location, it added. Mr Trump was not at the 58-storey tower.

The Trump Tower fire comes less than a week after a small fire broke out at the home of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York.

One firefighter and a civilian were injured, Associated Press reports. There were no evacuations and no one was reported injured, the spokesman said.

The president's son Eric later tweeted his thanks to firefighters for doing "an incredible job".




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

Trump Tower has been protected by heavy security presence since President Trump took office.

The New York Fire Department confirmed they were dealing with an incident, while pictures and video from the scene showed smoke billowing from the tower.

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