Two people were injured after a fire broke out at Trump Tower Monday morning, according to PIX11.

The Fire Department of NY says the fire started around 7am Monday at the building that contains President Trump's home and business offices.

The small fire was extinguished and there were no injuries reported, NBC News and CBS News said.

Aerial viewes showed fighters on the roof while the high-rise emitted smoke from one of its corners.

Trump Tower retains a large security presence and is often protected during large public events in Manhattan.

The fire was in a rooftop heating and cooling unit, the fire department told ABC News. The Department said its fighters were at the scene of the fire.

President Donald Trump was in the White House at the time. A few remained on the roof about an hour later after the fire was brought under control, the fire service said.

Trump Tower has been protected by heavy security presence since President Trump took office. President Trump, who owns the building and keeps an apartment in the skyscraper, is now in Washington DC.

One firefighter and a civilian were injured, Associated Press reports.

Another person suffered minor injuries in the blaze, the New York Fire Department said. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"
