    Fire crews are responding to a fire at Trump Tower in New York City

    Says it’s small electrical — so why such a big response?

    Could be the Russians.

    They're mad that the sanctions have not yet been lifted.

    126 firefighters, they had to form a human ladder to fight the fire on its own level...

    Any fire in a high rise is always a big response because of the threat of rapid spread and the large number of people occupying such a building.

    it's the same as with other higher risk locations, such as gas stations. The one by me had a rag fire in the repair bay 3 years ago, and they send 5 trucks in the first wave.

    The fire was out in 5 minutes, but with these types of fire, over-response is 1000 times better than under response.

    The Clintons just had a fire up there in Chappaquiddick so now The Trumpsters have to have a fire.

    Trump will do anything for a chance to file bankruptcy again. Would this one be #5 or #6.

    Conservatives don't believe in karma. If God didn't do it, they don't think it happened.
