A small fire apparently in construction trailers has broken out at the World Trade Center.
Firefighters have responded to the two-alarm blaze. Smoke could be seen rising from the trade center site, between the twin memorial pools.
The 9/11 memorial was evacuated as a precaution, but has since reopened, according to the 9/11 Memorial’s Twitter feed.
