Man dies in Trump Tower apartment fire in NY

New York Trump Tower fire put out

The New York Police Department said the 67-year-old man was found "unconscious and unresponsive" when officers arrived at the scene of the fire.

Flames and smoke were spotted billowing and debris raining down from the 50th floor of the Trump Tower around 5:30 p.m. Brassner lived in apartment 50C.

Brassner also spent time with Andy Warhol but later fell on harder financial times.

The publication reports that at the time, Trump had called city officials to argue that sprinklers were too expensive - at $4 per square foot - to install throughout an entire building.

Four firefighters were injured in the inferno Saturday.

The entire high-rise apartment became engulfed in flames Saturday at Trump Tower.

Almost 20 years ago, the man who was one of the biggest real estate moguls in the city lobbied against legislation that said sprinklers needed to be installed in all residential buildings. "Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition", tweets from the fire service quoted him as saying.

The Government and its allies were "orchestrating" disruptions and blaming the Congress for it, he alleged. The Parliament witnessed a complete washout of the second half of the Budget Session that ended on Friday.

Broken and burned windows are seen after a fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower on April 7, 2018 in New York City. He also made it a point to note that the building's residential floors lacked fire sprinklers.

The upper-level residential floors are not equipped with fire sprinklers, according to Nigro. Two people were injured in the fire, which officials said may have been caused by electrical heaters inside the cooling tower. Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of buildings across the United States that were built before fire sprinklers were required.

Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, "It's a well-built building".

"He says about 200 firefighters battled the blaze, with four suffering minor injuries".

Many wondered if the president had any condolences for the loss of life.

The first ever fire at Trump Tower was in 1982, when the top floor caught fire in what the fire chief then called 'definitely, absolutely, positively arson'. The fire was placed under control approximately two hours later.

The 35-year-old mixed-use skyscraper is a jewel in the Trump Organisation's real estate portfolio that includes high-end properties, hotels and golf courses. "Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m.
