President Trump’s brother, Eric Trump, takes to social media to issue reassuring statement about today’s trending news, the Trump Tower Fire.
Early this morning it was reported that firefighters rushed to the apex of the Fifth Avenue Trump Tower skyscraper at 57th Street in midtown Manhattan to put out the blaze. Trump Tower was the campaign nerve centre for President Donald Trump when he ran in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump’s brother, Eric commented on this morning’s situation, saying:
There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower. The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job. The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most sincere thanks and praise! https://t.co/xuTmq1GBbj

There were numerous announcements addressing tenants to assure them that there was no need to evacuate their apartments because the smoke from the fire was restricted to the roof and hadn’t breached the building. Multiple sources suggest that a couple of people were injured during this fire, but this is still yet to be confirmed.
The general public jumped on Twitter with images and videos of the rooftop fire:
