Fire breaks out Trump Tower in NYC

The first story claimed that President Donald Trump was "feared dead" because of the fire on the roof of the building, which is also the President's home in the city. Here's video showing the dark smoke billow from the top of the tower: FDNY officials said the small fire started in a heating and cooling unit. NYFD flooded the street and rooftop, extinguishing the fire "within minutes" according to the president's son Eric Trump, who was working in the building. "The men and women of the #FDNY are true heroes and deserve our most honest thanks and praise!"

Several others likened the current POTUS to the devil while commenting on the fire: "When fire breaks out on the top of Trump Tower because Trump Tower is hell's current headquarters". President Trump, who owns the building and keeps an apartment in the skyscraper, is now in Washington DC.
