One person has been seriously hurt, as more than 100 city firefighters battle a four-alarm blaze at Trump Tower, the FDNY said.

The FDNY said it received a 911 call around 5:35 p.m. Saturday of a fire at President Trump's Manhattan home.

The fire may be on the building's 50th floor. The building has been evacuated.

The cause has not been given at this time.

The injury was not to a city firefighter, according to the FDNY.

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

The fire was originally reported as a two-alarm blaze, but it has grown. At least 36 units and 126 firefighters are battling the flames.

Some roads around Trump Tower have been closed. As of 7:19 p.m., all lanes 5th Ave. southbound between 55th St. and 57th St. were closed until further notice
