Apparently this began around 7:15 this morning.
A fire has broken out near the roof of Trump Tower in New York City Monday morning. The blaze started just before 7:00 a.m., the New York Fire Department confirmed.
People posted video and images to social media, showing smoke rising from the building, which houses both residences and businesses.

The frothing left is rejoicing:
Trump will just collect a huge check from the Insurance company for more than the value of the damage.

This is your brain on Trump Derangement Syndrome.
I'm assuming it was a dryer fire. Money laundering is a dangerous business, especially the drying part.

But muh Russia!
Too bad it's not a 5-alarm fire. Maybe next time. And maybe Trump will be in residence next time.

So glad Democrats are the Party of Tolerance, or something.
Too bad he’s not there.

It goes on an on. Now it’s apparently under control:

There are no injuries reported and the fire is thought to be under control.

The replies are no less vile. This is who they are.
