NEW YORK (CBS/AP) – New York City fire officials say a fire in Trump Tower’s heating and air conditioning system injured two people and caused smoke to billow from the roof.

The department says it was called around 7 a.m. Monday for a report of a fire on the top floor. The building contains President Donald Trump’s home and business offices. The building also houses luxury apartments.

Fire officials say a civilian was treated for serious injuries and a firefighter was treated for minor injuries. It took about an hour to put out the fire on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Aerial views showed firefighters on the roof, with smoke billowing from one corner of the high-rise.  The FDNY said the fire was under control shortly after 8 a.m.

The president’s son Eric tweeted his thanks to firefighters for doing “an incredible job.”

People posted video and images to social media, showing smoke rising from the building. A fire has broken out near the roof of Trump Tower in New York City this morning.
