Members of the NYPD were also on the scene early Monday.

The fire at no point entered the building, and it was extinguished with water despite the freezing temperatures in New York City.

Busy place: The property contains both private residences and business offices, along with a foyer that is open to the public


No residents were evacuated from the building at any point during the fire, even as emergency vehicles filled up two blocks of Fifth Avenue.

That led to even more mayhem than normal for New Yorkers dealing with the Monday morning commute. 

'The fire wasn't in the building, it was on top of the building. We had flames coming out of the vents, no smoke condition or fire was on the inside,' said Asst. Chief Roger Sakowich from Trump Tower on Monday.

'We had one minor injury to a firefighter, and one minor injury to a civilian. Our units got up there quickly, we got water on the fire, which in 19 degrees creates more steam and smoke.'

He then added: 'We were able to extinguish the fire without any problems within the building. Everything went according to plan.' 

An update a few hours later revealed there was a second civilian who was injured at the scene, with Asst. Chief Sakowich stating that 'both were treated on scene and refused further medical aid.'


















Clearing out: Workers were able to head up to their offices without issue on Monday, with almost all signs of the fire crews gone before most started their work day at 9am

On his way: 'We had one minor injury to a firefighter, and one minor injury to a civilian. Our units got up there quickly, we got water on the fire, which in 19 degrees creates more steam and smoke.'


Trump Tower contains both private residences and business offices, along with a foyer that is open to the public.

Workers were able to head up to their offices without issue on Monday, with almost all signs of the fire crews gone before most started their work day at 9am.

This fire comes just days after a small blaze broke out at the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, just 40 miles north of Manhattan.

It was later revealed that a shorted-out bathroom fan caused that fire. 

This fire also comes as President Trump hits out at allegations being made about both himself and his administration in the Michael Wolff's bestselling West-Wing tell-all Fire and Fury.

President Trump did not tweet about the fire on Monday, instead using his first tweet of the day to state: 'African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the last year and is close to the lowest in recorded history. Dems did nothing for you but get your vote! #NeverForget @foxandfriends'
