One killed in Trump Tower fire

Brassner was unconscious and unresponsive when firefighters pulled him out, the New York Police Department said.

"The entire apartment was on fire", FDNY Commissioner Dan Nigro said at a press conference Saturday evening, according to the New York Daily News.

"Members pushed in heroically. The apartment was quite large and 50 stories up", he told the media, Chicago Tribune reported.

The all came in just before 6 pm Saturday and within minutes, about 200 firefighters and EMS workers arrived on scene. President Trump is now at the White House and not Trump Tower. Survivors desired all structures to have sprinklers, however the legislation that was passed was not retrospective, much to the pleasure of existing homeowner who mentioned expense as a significant factor not to be forced to retrofit their structures.

"We had many floors to search, and stairways, and right now the only civilian injury is to the occupant of that apartment".

"The fire was contained to the 50th floor of the tower, located on Fifth Avenue in New York", CNN continued. The tower really has 58 floors. There were no evacuations, although some residents left on their own, Mr Nigro said. "None of the president's family was at the building".


Twitter video showed flames shooting out of the building: President Trump was at the White House and not Trump Tower.

Trump was one of the developers in the late 1990s who lobbied against sprinklers in buildings. He said the fire had been extinguished but fire officials remained at the scene for several hours due to the heavy smoke.

Opened in 1983, the mixed-use skyscraper is a jewel in The Trump Organisation's real estate portfolio that includes high-end properties, hotels and golf courses. The Associated Press reported that the owners of older residential buildings such are Trump Tower are not required by law to install the fire safety device. He thanked the firemen and women for doing a great job.

Eric Trump also took to Twitter: "Thank you to the fantastic men and women of the NYFD who extinguished a fire in a residential apartment at @TrumpTower". Residents in their units on other floors at the time of the fire, however, hold a different view; multiple residents said there was no official evacuation notice.

The Manhattan apartment that caught fire and killed one person and injured six firefighters over the weekend did not have a sprinkler system, investigators said. Two people sustained minor injuries in that incident.
