Fire in Trump Tower in NY kills 1

Todd Brassner, 67, was unconscious when pulled from his apartment in the Midtown skyscraper and rushed to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital. Brassner had lived in the apartment since 1996, according to sale records. An investigation is ongoing. He thanked the responders as he insinuated in his tweet that the fire did not spread through the Trump Tower since it was "well-built".

The bill was later passed in March 1999 allowing buildings built before that year to not have sprinklers unless there were major renovations. Firemen (and women) did a great job.

Fire at Trump Tower is out.

When asked if the president's assessment of the building being well built was accurate, Nigro said, 'It's a well built building.

Mr. Trump tweeted at 6:43 p.m. that the fire had been extinguished, although Nigro said it wasn't yet under control at the time due to the smoke conditions on the upper floors.

The president who famously owns the glitzy Fifth Avenue residential-and-retail skyscraper that bears his name, tweeted his thanks to New York's firefighters.

Mr Nigro noted that no member of the Trump family was in the 664-foot tower on Saturday.

The apartments are listed on floors 66-68, although the building is technically only 58 stories.

DONALD Trump has boasted about Trump Tower after a blaze killed an art dealer - despite the luxury NY block having no sprinklers.

The president maintains the building's top three floors as his residential home. According to Nigro, 200 firefighters and EMS personnel responded to the scene. Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire, ' Nigro added.

Lalitha Masson, a 76-year-old resident, called it "a very, very terrifying experience". The president lives there in the top three floors when he is in NY.

Elevator service was also knocked out, and Lalitha Mason, who lives on the 36 floor, described herself to the Post as "terrified".

She said she started praying because she felt it was the end.
