Trump Tower fire in New York leaves pensioner dead and four firefighters injured

Trump Tower fire in New York leaves pensioner dead and four firefighters injuredA raging fire that tore through a 50th-floor apartment at Trump Tower killed a man inside and sent flames and thick, black smoke pouring from windows of the president's namesake skyscraper. New York Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said the cause of Saturday's blaze is not yet known but the apartment was "virtually entirely on fire" when firefighters arrived after 5:30 p.m. "It was a very difficult fire, as you can imagine," Nigro told reporters outside the building in midtown Manhattan. "The apartment is quite large." Todd Brassner, 67, who was in the apartment, was taken to a hospital and died a short time later, the New York Police Department said. Property records obtained by The Associated Press indicate Brassner was an art dealer who had purchased his 50th-floor unit in 1996. Officials said four firefighters also suffered minor injuries. An investigation is ongoing.

Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!" Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, "It's a well-built building. The upper floors, the residence floors, are not sprinklered." Fire sprinklers were not required in New York City high-rises when Trump Tower was completed in 1983. Subsequent updates to the building code required commercial skyscrapers to install the sprinklers retroactively, but owners of older residential high-rises are not required to install sprinklers unless the building undergoes major renovations. The fire is still not considered to be under control because of the smoke conditions on all the floors above -#FDNY Commissioner Nigro gives update on 4th alarm, 721 5th Ave Manhattan— FDNY (@FDNY) April 8, 2018 Some fire-safety advocates pushed for a requirement that older apartment buildings be retrofitted with sprinklers when New York City passed a law requiring them in new residential highrises in 1999, but officials in the administration of then-mayor Rudy Giuliani said that would be too expensive. Nigro noted that no member of the Trump family was in the 664-foot tower Saturday. Trump's family has an apartment on the top floors of the 58-story building, but he has spent little time in New York since taking office. The headquarters of the Trump Organisation is on the 26th floor. A fire has broken out at Trump Tower in New York Nigro said firefighters and Secret Service members checked on the condition of Trump's apartment. About 200 firefighters and emergency medical service workers responded to the fire, he said. Some residents said they didn't get any notification from building management to evacuate. Lalitha Masson, a 76-year-old resident, called it "a very, very terrifying experience." Masson told The New York Times that she did not receive any announcement about leaving, and that when she called the front desk no one answered.

She said she started praying because she felt it was the end. "I called my oldest son and said goodbye to him because the way it looked everything was falling out of the window, and it reminded me of 9/11," Masson said.
