A fire that broke out on the roof of Trump Tower in NY has been contained, firefighters have said.

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

President Trump lives on the top three floors of the building, but has been in Washington DC since he took office last January.

The president was not in the building when the fire erupted. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

Firefighters could be seen on the roof of the building, between 56th and 57th streets. Dozens of firefighters responded to the blaze after the initial call came in around 7:30am.
