NY Trump Tower Fire On 50th Floor Out, One Injured – President Safe In DC

One man is dead in the blaze that broke out at Trump Tower this evening, according to a law enforcement source. Fox News pointed out though that sprinklers weren't required in York New York skyscrapers when construction on it began in 1979.

Six firefighters suffered injuries that are not life threatening, Conroy said.

No member of the Trump family was in the 664-foot tower on Saturday.

Mr. Trump tweeted shortly after the fire broke out that his building is "well-built".

Firefighters remained at the scene Sunday, cleaning up after the blaze and trying to determine its cause. "Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition", the official account for the Fire Department of NY tweeted at the time.

Trump Tower, which opened in 1984, is located on Fifth Ave. and 57th St.in midtown Manhattan.

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom. According to a new report, Apple is now working on curved iPhone displays which may arrive in a couple of years.

Mr Trump's family has an apartment on the top floors of the 58-storey building but he has spent little time in NY since taking office.

Still, Trump said at the time that he would spend $3 million to outfit Trump World's 370 units with sprinklers because it would make tenants feel safer, according to a New York Times article from the era. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died, said spokeswoman Angelica Conroy of the Fire Department.

The cause of the fire was not immediately available. "The apartment was quite large and 50 stories up", he said.

Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, "It's a well built building".

"The rest of the building had a considerable amount of smoke". That was well after the opening of Trump Tower in February 1983. "The top flooring, the residence flooring, are not sprinklered".

Trump Tower, named for the 45th president, is also the headquarters of the Trump Organization and was the campaign nerve center for Donald Trump when he ran on the Republican ticket in the 2016 presidential election.
