Fire breaks out on 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York


A  fire has broken out at Trump Tower in New York.
Fire crews were called to the building on Fifth Avenue just before 6pm local time. 
The fire, believed to be on the 50th floor, comes about three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building. 

President Trump's office in the Tower is on the 26th floor, but the president is in Washington, D.C. for the weekend.

Social media video showed a small fire that was visible from the structure in central Manhattan.
The New York Fire Department said on its Twitter feed that it was a three-alarm blaze and there were no immediate reports of injuries. 
President Trump tweeted: "Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!"
The high-rise houses both residences and businesses.
