Fatal Trump Tower fire caused by electrical overload, FDNY says

Trump Tower fatal fire was an accident: FDNY

Authorities say overloaded power strips sparked the deadly Trump Tower fire in New York City that sent flames and thick, black smoke pouring from windows of the president's namesake skyscraper.

Fire Marshals traced the cause to "sequenced power strips powering multiple components".

The 4-alarm blaze broke out in a 50th floor apartment on April 7, creating a harrowing scene of smoke billowing out from the president's NY residence.

The April 7 blaze started about 5:30 p.m.in an apartment on the 50th floor of Trump Tower.

FDNY officials had previously stated that there were no sprinklers or working smoke detectors inside the apartment.

Todd Brassner, a longtime resident of the building and well-respected art dealer, died of smoke inhalation. The building opened in 1983 when building codes did not require sprinklers in residential sections of buildings.
