  • FDNY On Scene Of 4-Alarm Fire At Trump Tower

No injuries have been reported.

The FDNY said one civilian was seriously injured.

The fire was mostly out though not considered technically contained due to continuing smoke conditions.

The fire, believed to be on the 50th floor, comes about three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building.

Fire crews were called to the building on Fifth Avenue just before 6pm local time.

President Donald Trump tweeted about 45 minutes later that the fire was out.

The President's son also expressed his gratitude in a tweet, noting that the fire was located in a residential apartment in Trump Tower.

Nigro described the apartment where the fire began as "quite large" and containing "quite a lot of furniture" which led to its spread.

Trump praised the building's construction as a "well built building" and lauded firefighters who managed to put out the blaze on Saturday. The FDNY told WCBS Radio that four firefighters suffered minor injuries.

Flames could be seen emerging from the windows of the 50th floor in videos and photos posted to Twitter yesterday by witnesses and the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY). No cause for the fire has been revealed as of yet.
