Despite the police saying no one had been injured at the filming location of popular TV show, The Apprentice; news outlets have reported at least two people being injured, suffering from possible burns/smoke inhalation.
President Trump is currently in Washington at the moment and was not directly affected by the fire. His son Eric has advised that the fire started due to an electrical fault.
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

No doubt The Donald will have the painters and decorators in by the afternoon and everything will be back to normal by the end of the day.
This has in the very least, given him something else to think about other than Fake News and where he’s going for his next game of golf.
