Person Killed In Trump Tower Fire

Fire breaks out on 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City

A man died Saturday after a raging apartment fire on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan.

President Donald Trump, his wife Melania and son Barron were not in the NY apartment this weekend, where he maintains a three-story penthouse residence.

ABC News reported that the victim, Todd Brassner, was pulled unconscious from his apartment at the luxury Fifth Avenue sky scraper and died later at the hospital.

However, Brassner had filed for bankrupcy in 2015 after dealing with a series of issues that caused him to fall in arrears on his mortgage. 200 Firefighters and EMS members are on scene'.

US President Donald Trump has a home and an office in the building.

The fire was contained to the 50th floor of the tower, located on Fifth Avenue in NY.

"The fire was a hard fire".

The fire was later brought under control.

Two decades before he was president, Trump got political when he spent thousands of dollars lobbying City Council members not to pass the bill - because it would be too expensive for his apartment buildings.

The FDNY said that six firefighters suffered injuries. Very confined (well built building).

The Mayor Rudolph Giuliani era bill was eventually altered to exclude older buildings such as Trump Tower (built in 1979 and opened in 1983), or buildings for which permits had already been submitted, such as Trump's 72-floor tower opposite the United Nations building in New York, Trump World Tower. "THANK YOU!" he wrote on Twitter.

A fire in a 50th-floor apartment at Trump Tower killed a man inside and sent flames and thick, black smoke pouring from windows of the president's namesake skyscraper. "The apartment is quite large", according to the Financial Times.

As the New York Dailiy News points out, Trump has previously fought legislation that would require buildings in New York City to require sprinklers. "Instead they received an automatic notification that there was a fire inside".
