A fire broke out on the roof of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan early Monday morning, law-enforcement officials said.

Two civilians and one firefighter suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the electrical fire, which sparked at about 7 a.m., officials said. The firefighter was brought to Bellevue Hospital, while the civilians were treated at the scene.

The more than 80 firefighters had the fire at the 58-story building under control by 8:13 a.m., a Fire Department of New York official said. There were no evacuations at the tower, a police official said.

The president’s son, Eric Trump, who runs the Trump Organization with brother Donald Trump Jr. , said the fire occurred in a cooling tower on the roof.

“The New York Fire Department was here within minutes and did an incredible job,” Mr. Trump said in a tweet.

Investigators were determining the official cause of the fire, officials said.

President Donald Trump has an apartment in the tower on Fifth Avenue and 56th Street but was in Washington, D.C. at the time of the fire. The tower houses businesses and luxury apartments.
