TWO people were injured, one seriously, in an early-morning fire near the top of Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, the New York Fire Department said today.

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

Aerial views showed firefighters on the roof, with smoke billowing from one corner of the high-rise, which was completed in 1983 as the business headquarters of now-President Donald Trump.

Although local media initially reported there were no injuries, one person sustained a serious, possibly life-threatening injury, and another had a minor injury, the Fire Department said.

He added: "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

"So we had flames coming out of those vents - again no fire inside the building". A few remained on the roof about an hour later after the fire was brought under control, the fire service said. Fire marshals are investigating the cause.

Once the investigation is complete, the results will be released, the spokesman, Firefighter Jim Long, said.

The 68-story Manhattan high rise houses its namesake developer-turned-president in a penthouse condominium, though President Trump was in Washington at the time of the fire, according to his White House schedule.
