Person Killed In Trump Tower Fire

People on the streets of New York stopped to capture the incredible scene at the president's Manhattan residence

One resident is dead and six firefighters injured after a four-alarm blaze on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in NY on Saturday evening. The residential floors in Trump Tower do not have sprinklers, Nigro said.

In the Reuters News video below, Commissioner Daniel Nigro gives more informaiton.

Requested if this assessment was true, Nigro claimed, "It's a well-built construction".

At a Saturday press conference, the NY fire department's commissioner Daniel Nigro, said that when Trump's family is at Trump tower, extra fire protection is maintained. While the rest of the building had a "considerable amount of smoke", it was not immediately clear if it reached Mr. Trump's unit, he said... Trump, then a property developer, tried to prevent it, CBS News said.

The Department of Buildings has issued a partial order to vacate residences 50C and 51C, they note, and residents are able to occupy the 55 floor and above or 45 floor and below. Firemen (and women) did a great job.

President Donald Trump has an office and home at the 58-story building, but was at the luxury Trump International Hotel in Washington at the time, as was First Lady Melania.

Mr Nigro said firefighters and Secret Service members checked on the condition of Mr Trump's apartment. A firefighter and two other people were injured in the January fire. Despite the raging fire responding firefighters entered the apartment where they found the victim. Shields also said that although there were no orders to evacuate, he received a personal text message from Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom Shields grew up with.
