NEW YORK– Two people were injured after a fire broke out at Trump Tower on Monday morning.
According to PIX11, the blaze was reported at 721 5th Ave. at 6:58 a.m., and crews were still fighting the fire as of 7:38 a.m.
The injuries were to a firefighter who was hurt when debris fell on him and an engineer who attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher and inhaled smoke, said FDNY Manhattan Borough Commander Roger Sakowich. The engineer refused medical attention.
Ken Reilly, a spokesman for the department, said the fire was reported shortly before 7 a.m. ET. It took about an hour to take control of the blaze, Sakowich said.
Sakowich said there were no smoke or fire conditions inside the building but authorities are investigating to see if there is any damage. The building wasn’t evacuated during the incident, the FDNY said.
