One person sustained a serious and possibly life-threatening injury, while another had a minor injury.

Some 84 firefighters and medical crews responded as 26 emergency units with lights flashing converged on the crowded midtown Manhattan location, it added.

Trump commissioned architect Der Scutt to create an imposing, dominating structure that the Trump Tower website describes as "a world-famous testament of Mr Trump's grand vision".

A fire broke out on the roof of NYC's Trump Tower on the morning of Monday, Jan. 8.

The Fire Department said the fire was not inside the building, but on top of it.

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. Fire officials said the fire was contained to the roof and never entered the building. The fire department was called shortly before 7 a.m. The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job.

US President Donald Trump was in Washington at the time.

That same day, Neon Nettle published a second piece saying that the "massive fire" (it was not massive) had fueled fears that Trump could be the victim of a "deep state assasination".

Trump's wife, Melania, and young son Barron lived in Trump Tower through the first few months of Trump's presidency, but the family moved into the White House in June past year.
