So far, only one person has been reportedly injured in the fire incident in the building, which houses both residences and businesses.

Trump was in Washington on Monday morning, according to his public White House schedule. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heros and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

"One minor injury to a firefighter, some debris fell on him, and one engineer who got up there with a fire extinguisher, inhaled some smoke, refused medical assistance".
