Was President Trump 'Feared Dead' After a Fire at Trump Tower?

The president was in Washington DC at the time.

The president's son Eric tweeted his thanks to firefighters for doing "an incredible job".

While Trump and the First Family now live in the White House, he maintains a palatial apartment in the 58-story tower.

"There was a small electrical fire this morning on the rooftop that has since been put out", the NYPD told Us in a statement.

The blaze reportedly broke out at around 6.58am on Monday, NBC4 NY reported, and appears to have affacted the top of the building, which would put the blaze close to Trump's own penthouse residence and several floors about the headquarters of The Trump Organization.

More than 90 minutes after the initial report, 84 firefighters and 26 units were still on the scene. The tower also houses a number of businesses. A blaze broke out in the ventilation system of the building yesterday, injuring three people, including a firefighter. How fitting. A sign from God", one wrote, while another added, "Hope Trump likes all the fire and fury happening on top of his tower right now. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"
