That is a serious blaze, reportedly at or near the 50th floor of the tower.

With at least one serious injury reported, it sounds like things have at least thankfully calmed down somewhat.

Still scary though!

Of course, Trump found time to tweet about it (below):

Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!

OK, Donnie boy. THANK YOU!

Seriously though, just glad there weren’t more serious injuries.
