At least two people were injured when an electrical fire started Monday on the roof of New York's Trump Tower, the fire department said.

Firefighters responded to the blaze at 7:00 am at the iconic Fifth Avenue luxury tower, which was built by President Donald Trump.

A firefighter and a civilian were injured in the fire, which has been extinguished, emergency services officials said.

"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!" Eric Trump, one of the president's sons, said in a Twitter post.

President Trump is at the White House and is scheduled to travel later in the day to Nashville, where he will deliver an address to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

On Monday night, the president will travel to Atlanta to watch the college football championship game between Alabama and Georgia.
