A photo sent to Mediaite from the scene showed the fire had shattered windows on two sides of the 50th floor:
Trump reacted to the blaze on Twitter, thanking the firefighters who worked to thwart it and praising his tower for being a “well built building”:
Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!
