The city's Fire Department said the blaze broke out at around 7am (noon GMT) on Monday, causing smoke to billow from the roof of the building which contains USA president Donald Trump's home and business offices.

The Fire Department reported three injuries, two of which were not life-threatening. In the meantime, social media users are sharing their thoughts about Trump Tower's rooftop inferno.

The fire reportedly started on the roof of the 58-storey tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan at about 7am this morning local time. The Department said its fighters were at the scene of the fire. It was not immediately known if those injured were civilians or firefighters.
