Firefighters responded to a blaze that broke out on the top of Trump Tower in New York City Monday morning.

Authorities say the fire began shortly before 7:00 a.m., CBS News reports.

Firefighters arrived on scene about 30 minutes later. No evacuations were necessary and the fire is now under control, a New York Police Department spokesman told The Washington Post.

The most lavish rooms in NYC’s Trump Tower are situated at the top of the skyscraper, including Trump’s own penthouse.

Videos of smoke streaming out of the roof of the 68-story building have popped up on social media.
