1 Dead After Fire Breaks Out at Trump Tower
Six firefighters were also injured in the blaze.
A man is dead and six firefighters are injured after a four-alarm fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City.
The NYPD has identified the victim as 67-year-old Todd Brassner, who lived in the apartment where the fire broke out Sunday.
Brassner was an art dealer who had purchased his 50th-floor unit in 1996, reports said.
"The apartment was virtually entirely on fire," FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. "[Firefighters] pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire, they found one occupant of the apartment on the 50th floor."
The cause of the fire is still unknown.
Six firefighters suffered injuries while battling the blaze, to which 190 firefighters responded.
President Trump took to Twitter Saturday night to announce the fire was out in the 58-story building.
"Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!" Trump wrote.
The incident follows another fire at the building that broke out in January. Two people suffered minor injuries in that blaze, CBS New York reported.
