NEW YORK (RNN) - Firefighters have contained an electrical fire that broke out on the roof of Trump Tower Monday.

More than 126 firefighters responded to the scene, and the fire was contained by 7:40 a.m., Fox News reports.

Photos and videos of the scene showed smoke billowing from the skyscraper.

No injuries have been reported due to the one-alarm fire, according to the NYPD.

President Donald Trump was in Washington, DC, at the time of the fire.
