A fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City on Saturday with the local fire department rushing to the scene. Once the fire was under control, the president decided to give an update on Twitter.

Trump on Trump Tower fire

On Saturday afternoon in New York City, a fire spread on the 50th floor of Trump Tower, the private residence of Donald Trump when he's not living back at the White House in Washington, D.C.

The fire was described as a "three-alarm blaze" with no injuries being reported after dozens of fire trucks made their way to the scene to get the situation under control and make sure no further damage took place. Trump's office is located on the 26th floor, but he was not in attendance as he was back in Washington for the weekend. The fire comes just three months after a smaller blaze broke out on the rook of the building.

In response to the news, Donald Trump took to Twitter to give his thoughts and an update on the situation. "Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building).

Firemen (and women) did a great job," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "THANK YOU!" As expected, Trump's tweet about the fire at his New York City building was quickly met with mockery and sarcasm, with many taking shots at the president's current scandal involving possible Russian collusion and the hacking of the 2016 presidential election by the Kremlin.

Twitter reaction

Within minutes of Donald Trump tweeting about the Trump Tower fire, those who oppose the commander in chief wasted no time firing back. "Can you tell me more about death?

You look like the death of civilization. Maybe you should learn of Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, who still loves you despite your degeneracy?" one tweet read.

"No Chinese drywall in that," a Twitter user wrote with sarcasm. "It was your pants, wasn’t it?" another tweet asked. "You can probably expect more 'fires' in the coming months," an additional tweet stated. "Terrorist attack by right wingers, no comments for days: fire at place Trump makes money, comment within minutes," a post read.

"Surprised as you have so much evidence to burn up just like the Russian Embassy," a social media user wrote. "That's not The first time your pants have been on fire," a follow-up tweet went on to read. The negative reaction continued to pour in as the rift between those who support Donald Trump and those who oppose him showed no signs of coming to an end at any point in the near future.
