Well, it is for the second time in this year that Trump Tower has been trapped under fire. Earlier, the incident took place in January when vents on the roof ruptured into flames due to an electrical issue that came into light, as per reports. The fire at Trump Tower that broke resulted in 3 injuries, although, the FDBY later claimed the situation to be quick, routine, and easy.
