Firefighters are at the scene of a fire at Trump Tower in New York City.

The Fire Department says the blaze broke out on the 50th floor shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday (local time). 

Photos posted on Twitter show flames and smoke coming out of windows at the midtown skyscraper.

President Donald Trump's business is based at Trump Tower and his residence is there, but he has spent little time in New York since taking office.

President Trump tweeted shortly after the incident, saying the fire at his namesake high-rise "is out."
