Art Dealer Killed in Trump Tower Fire

Todd Brassner, 67 was in the apartment when fire errupted, he was immediately taken to the hospital but he coundn't survive, the New York Police Department said.

Thank you to the awesome men and women of the NYFD who extinguished a fire in a residential apartment at @TrumpTower.

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

"I'm sure the family of the deceased will be comforted to know that it was a well built building", tweeted one Twitter user.

"Very confined (properly constructed constructing)", he tweeted. He thanked the firemen and women for doing a great job.

No less than one individual died and 4 others had been injured after a fireplace broke out Saturday in Trump Tower in New York Metropolis, police and fireplace officers mentioned.

Firefighters responded to an automatic alarm that sounded on the 50 floor of the building shortly before 6pm.

"The apartment was virtually entirely on fire".


The four-alarm blaze at the 58-story building on Fifth Avenue at 57th Street in Midtown was quickly quelled, although not before debris from the blaze fell to the streets below. "THANK YOU!" Mr Trump tweeted. He has an office and a home in the building, but he was not in NY on Saturday.

The four firefighters injured had non-life threatening injuries, Conroy said.

The publication explains that fire sprinklers were not required in New York City high-rises during the time Trump Tower was built, in 1983.

Trump maintains a three-story penthouse residence at the building, which has earned Trump Tower the nickname of "White House North".

Some residents said they didn't get any notification from building management to evacuate.

According to ABC 7, New York's ABC affiliate, investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.

This is the second time firefighters have been called to the building in recent months, as a small fire broke out there in January.
