1 dead, 6 injured in fire at Trump Tower

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

The four firefighters also suffered smoke inhalation in the blaze, but were expected to recover.

"Fire at Trump Tower is out", President Trump wrote on Twitter. Very confined (well-built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. No concern about firefighter injuries in battling the blaze or two civilians injured by falling debris.

Donald Trump pushed to block a requirement for fire sprinklers in city high-rises in the late 1990s. Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said Secret Service agents accompanied firefighters to check on the Trump residence.

Shortly after the news of this flame broke, Trump, who had been in Washington, tweeted: "fireplace at Trump Tower will be out". The Trump Organization, which owns the 263-unit condo and office building at 721-725 Fifth Avenue, houses their headquarters on the 26th floor. The victim, Todd Brassner, was a resident of building. Trump Tower apartments were built before a sprinkler system was required for NY skyscrapers.

Unfortunately, a resident in an apartment on the 50th floor was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

He said he had also instructed agricultural officials to implement a plan to protect U.S. farmers and agricultural interests. That was backed up by Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, who said tariff negotiations with China had not started.

"The rest of the building had a considerable amount of smoke". At the time the legislation was being discussed, Mr. Trump had just started construction on a 72-story tower near the United Nations, and he subsequently said he would install sprinklers there at a cost of $3 million.

Early talks for the proposed bill suggested that all residential buildings be required to install sprinklers, which irked developers, including Trump.

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

Nigro said more than 200 firefighters rushed to the scene. Nigro said no member of the Trump family was in the building Saturday.

The commander-in-chief not only failed to expressed any concern for any people who may be trapped in the fire or those who were injured while struggling to get out, he also managed to highlight his penchant for sexism in a tasteless tweet.
