Fire at Trump Tower kills one, police say

Fire at Trump Tower kills one, police say

Some surrounding streets from Trump Tower were closed during the incident. Soon, flames could be seen making their way across the unit as dark plumes of smoke billowed upward, obstructing numerous floors above. The Medical Examiner's office will determine the cause of death. The Fire Department of NY upgraded the fire, which it initially granted two-alarm status.

President Donald Trump congratulated firefighters and tweeted that the fire was out.

Subsequent updates to the building code required commercial skyscrapers to install the sprinklers retroactively, but owners of older residential highrises are not required to install sprinklers unless the building undergoes major renovations. "The apartment is quite large". Fireman (and women) did a great job.

The FDNY said that six firefighters suffered injuries fighting the blaze.

Trump continued to tweet through the evening, but never again referenced the fire, and never referenced the deceased or the tenant.

Art dealer Todd Brassner was taken to hospital in a critical condition but later died, according to New York Fire Department (NYFD) Commissioner Daniel Nigro. Donald Trump used the tragedy to boast about the fine construction of his flagship Manhattan skyscraper. Four of the firefighters were injured during the fire with two of them suffering burns.

Daniel Nigro, commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, told reporters that the blaze was "a very hard fire, as you can imagine".

ABC reported that it was the second fire this year at Trump tower. 200 Firefighters and EMS members are on scene'.

Fire officials say the Trump family wasn't home when the fire broke out.

While it's uncertain the number of fires have actually been at the structure because it opened in 1984, an extreme fire in 1982 set building back 2 months, inning accordance with amNewYork.

After a fire in a residential building in 1999, then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani called for the sprinkler legislation, putting him at odds with his longtime friend. "All we could do is put wet towels under the door and pray".
