Fire at Trump Tower: 1 dead, 6 injured

One person was killed and six firefighters were injured in a four-alarm fire at Trump Tower on Saturday, according to the New York City Fire Department.

The person who died was a resident of the building’s 50th floor who had been taken to the hospital in critical condition, department spokeswoman Angelica Conroy told CNN.
The victim was a 67-year-old man who was unconscious and unresponsive when firefighters pulled him out, the New York Police Department said, adding the medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.
The fire was contained to the 50th floor of the tower, located on Fifth Avenue in New York. It was ruled under control around 9 p.m., about two hours after it was originally reported, the FDNY said in a tweet.
The six firefighters injured had non-life threatening injuries, Conroy said.
No members of the Trump family were at the tower during the fire, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.
President Donald Trump tweeted before the news of the death that the fire was out and “very confined” in the “well built building” and congratulated the firefighters.
Trump Tower serves as the headquarters for The Trump Organization, and many members of the President’s family live there or have lived there.
