Authorities respond to fire on Trump Tower roof

Two people were injured after a fire broke out on the roof of U.S. President Donald Trump's Manhattan skyscraper, Trump Tower, Monday morning.

The Fire Department of NY says the fire started around 7am Monday at the building that contains President Trump's home and business offices.

Injuries were non-life-threatening, and the blaze was declared under control by 8:15 a.m., Dwyer said.

Completed in 1983, Trump Tower was designed by American architect Der Scutt and has zigzagging glass facade, with stepped terraces topped with trees midway up.

The president has yet to comment on the fire in Trump Tower, where he lived with his wife Melania and their son Barron, until moving into the White House at the beginning of 2017. The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job.

A short circuit in a bathroom fan was responsible for the fire in a detached building on the Clintons' property, according to The Associated Press. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

The president was in Washington DC at the time. The fire triggered a massive response from firefighters.
