One man has died and a number firefighters injured after a fire broke out at the Trump Tower in New York on Saturday. Police identified the man killed as Todd Brassner, 67, a millionaire art dealer who was a resident on the building’s 50th floor.
The blaze started on the 50th floor of the tower in New York City’s central Manhattan area shortly after 5:30 pm local time. Trump, who has an office and private residence in the building, was in Washington at the time.
Press TV reports: The New York City Fire Department responding to the situation said later that the fire had come under control.
Three firefighters have also sustained non-life-threatening injuries
But even before that, Trump declared that the fire had been put out, and thanked the fire department.
They, however, updated the blaze from a three-alarm fire to a four-alarm fire, adding it was not yet under control.
“Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!” the US President wrote.
