A building in Azerbaijan which was once meant to be a Trump-branded hotel has caught fire.
The fire broke out on the middle floors of the 33-storey Trump International Hotel and Tower in Baku on Saturday afternoon.
After the first blaze, the building had few visible signs of damage to its exterior.
A total of four fire engines have been dispatched to the scene and both the Minister of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan, Colonel-General Kamaladdin Heydarov and Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations, Lieutenant-General Etibar Mirzayev, are coordinating the emergency response on the ground, reports APA.
It is still unclear what caused the fire. The ministry said the fire started on the 18th floor and burned for three hours.
The Trump Organization withdrew its licensing agreement for the Baku skyscraper, formerly called Trump Tower, shortly after the 2016 election, as it promised to wind down worldwide projects that could pose conflicts of interest to the president.
In December 2017, it became known that the company of Donald trump terminated the license agreement on projects in several countries, particularly in Azerbaijan.
The elder Mammadov was suspected by USA diplomats of laundering money for Iran's military, according to leaked diplomatic cables made available in 2010.
Plans to open the high-rise as a business center so far haven't materialized.
