While it’s understood the fire has been ‘knocked back’, firefighters are currently in the process of making sure it doesn’t spread to any other parts of the building.
There’ve been no injuries immediately reported and the cause of the blaze is currently unknown.
It’s thought President Donald Trump was not in his apartment during the time of the fire and was residing in Washington.
