Firefighters tackle blaze at Trump Tower in Baku (VIDEOS)

A high-rise building in Azerbaijan's capital that once was meant to be a Trump-branded hotel caught fire Saturday, but the flames were put out and no injuries were reported. There were no reports of injuries. Then the fire was extinguished three hours later.

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. Trump earned between 2.5 million dollars and 2.8 million dollars in management fees from the unopened hotel.

The fire in the unfinished building started just weeks after a man died in an apartment fire in New York's Trump Tower.

Jazz crowd taunts Paul George during Game 3
While Sunday's practice was focused predominantly on physical recovery, the Jazz still did film study - as they always do. The Thunder started the second half hot, taking a 63-60 lead on a 3-pointer from Anthony, but again Utah had the answer.

Efforts to battle Saturday's fire were complicated by the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which is being held on Sunday in the city and has led to road closure.

Firefighters were on the scene of the fire at the 33-story building in the country's capital this afternoon. Any information about the reason for the second day of the fire is not yet known.
