Two people were injured after a small fire broke out at the top of Trump Tower in NY on Monday, January 8 morning, The Telegraph reports.

Three people, including a firefighter, suffered minor injuries, officials said.

Firefighters appeared to have the blaze under control within an hour, NBC News says.

Officials stressed there was no blaze within the building itself.

U.S. President Donald Trump was in Washington at the time. There have been no injuries or evacuations, and the President is not now at Trump Tower.

The building served as Donald Trump's primary residence and workplace before he took up residence in the White House past year.

So far, only one person has been reportedly injured in the fire incident in the building, which houses both residences and businesses. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!" he posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
