Authorities in New York said Monday that emergency crews had responded to a fire at Trump Tower in Manhattan.

A New York Police Department spokesman said a call came in at around 7:30 a.m. about a one-alarm fire on the roof the 68-floor luxury building on 5th Avenue. There were no evacuations, the spokesman said, and the flames are reportedly under control.

The fire department is on the scene, according to authorities.

Fire officials could not immediately be reached for comment, but FDNY tweeted an alert at 8:16 a.m., saying the blaze inside an HVAC system is "under control."

Police said no injuries had been reported, but a reporter with CW affiliate WPIX said officials confirmed two people had been injured.

President Donald Trump was in Washington on Monday morning, according to his public White House schedule.

The Manhattan high rise that bears his name houses Trump and his family in a penthouse condominium. Trump Tower was also the setting for the developer-turned-president's reality TV show, "The Apprentice," and the headquarters of his presidential campaign.

Eric Trump tweeted "There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower. The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job. The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most sincere thanks and praise!"
