  • Fire breaks out Trump Tower in NYC

Following the massive fire that broke out at the Trump Tower in NY this morning, fears that President Donald Trump may have been a victim of a "deep state" assassination attempt have begun to circulate.

Injuries were non-life-threatening, and the blaze was declared under control by 8:15 a.m., Dwyer said.

About 84 firefighters were at the scene initially.

As firefighters battled the blaze, a plume of smoke spewed from the roof of the 68-story structure, which had been Trump's primary residence before his election victory and inauguration almost a year ago.

A fire broke out on the roof of NYC's Trump Tower on the morning of Monday, Jan. 8. A firefighter suffered a minor injury when debris fell on him. Fire officials said the fire was contained to the roof and never entered the building. NY time, reportedly by Secret Service agents.

Eric Trump stated on Twitter that the fire was caused by an electrical issue in a cooling tower, and praised the Fire Department's response.

The tower houses businesses and luxury apartments, including Mr Trump's three-storey penthouse, which reportedly occupies the top three floors.

Again, the President at the time of this writing is neither missing nor in NY. "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.

A short circuit in a bathroom fan was responsible for the fire in a detached building on the Clintons' property, according to The Associated Press.
