Trump Tower caught fire on Monday morning, with emergency responders rushing to the scene just after 7am in midtown Manhattan.

Clouds of dark smoke emanated from the Trump Tower's rooftop, January 8, 2018, in NY. Neither President Donald Trump nor any members of his family are now in Trump Tower. Trump Tower was also the setting for the reality TV show, "The Apprentice", and the headquarters of his presidential campaign. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!" The department says it was called around 7 a.m. Monday for a report of a fire on the top floor. Even in India, a massive fire had broken out at two restaurants in Kamal Mills area of Mumbai in which 14 people including 11 women were injured. The flames were put out about an hour later. No smoke or fire inside the building.




Firefighters could be seen on the roof of the building, between 56th and 57th streets.

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