NEW YORK (AP) -- Smoke has dwindled on the roof of Trump Tower in New York City.

The Fire Department of New York says it was called there around 7 a.m. Monday for a report of a fire on the top floor.

Smoke billowed from one corner of the high-rise for a while before most of it dissipated.

About 84 firefighters were at the scene initially. A few remained on the roof about an hour later.

Fire officials say two fire fighters suffered minor injuries. It's not known what caused the smoke-filled scene.

The building houses luxury apartments and businesses.
