NY authorities say one person died after a fire broke out in an apartment at the city's Trump Tower on the evening of April 7.

The residential floors in Trump Tower do not have sprinklers, Nigro said. Brassner had hit a rough patch recently, including health issues and bankruptcy, according to a filing cited by the Post. Daily Mail reported, however, that the fire was declared under control at around 7:45 p.m.

President Donald Trump tweeted about the fire but didn't mention Todd Brassner, the 67-year-old resident who died.

Besides the one fatality, six FDNY firefighters suffered nonlife-threatening injuries - two of them burn-related, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said during a press conference.

"This was a very hard fire". "Fire at Trump Tower is out", he wrote at 6:42 p.m.

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.

Fire officials say the Trump family wasn't home when the fire broke out. "The apartment was quite large and 50 stories up", he said.

Six firefighters from the local fire department were also injured while trying to tame the blaze, departmental sources said. Very confined (well built building). The Medical Examiner's office will determine the cause of death.

On Sunday morning, Trump posted about a half-dozen tweets on a variety of subjects, including the "rigged" investigation into Hillary Clinton and how he and Chinese President Xi Jinping would "always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade". Fireman (and women) did a great job.

Shortly after news of the fire broke, Mr Trump, who was in Washington, tweeted: "Fire at Trump Tower is out". Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire, ' Nigro added.
