Fire Breaks Out on Roof of Trump Tower

Playing Electrical Box Causes Fire at Trump Tower

New York City firefighters on early Monday morning were fighting a fire that appeared to break out on the roof of Trump Tower.

Aerial views seen in CBS News video showed smoke pouring from one corner of the roof of the 58-story high rise.

Firefighters said an electrical box was involved in the fire, according to reports.

Two civilians and a firefighter were injured as a result of the blaze, but none were considered life-threatening, the FDNY said.

President Trump was not inside the tower at the time.

The midtown Manhattan landmark is considered the jewel in Donald Trump's real estate crown and the president called the tower home up he moved to the White House. 

The fire comes at an ironic moment for the president who, along with his surrogates, spent the weekend denying the details in Michael Wolff's earth-shattering inside look at the current administration, titled Fire and Fury.
