A fire in Trump Tower's heating and air conditioning system Monday morning injured two people and caused smoke to billow from the roof.

The extent of the blaze was not immediately known at the headquarters of the Trump business operations.

President Donald Trump is at the White House in Washington, D.C., not in his residence at Trump Tower.

The fire department said the blaze started around 7 a.m. ET at the building that contains President Donald Trump's home and business offices.

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.

The president's son Eric tweeted his thanks to firefighters for doing "an incredible job."
