At a Saturday press conference, the NY fire department's commissioner Daniel Nigro, said that when Trump's family is at Trump tower, extra fire protection is maintained.

One person has been killed on Saturday in a raging apartment fire at Trump Tower in New York City. Four firefighters had minor injuries.

"The apartment was entirely on fire. If you look at the fire deaths in NY, nearly all of them are in one-or two-family houses". "The apartment is quite large; we're 50 stories up", Nigro said. "200 Firefighters and EMS members are on scene".

"We had many floors to search, and stairways". Two firefighters were injured when debris fell on top of them and an engineer was injured but refused treatment in that incident. Streets surrounding the building owned by US President Donald Trump that serves as the headquarters for The Trump Organization and houses the president's penthouse were closed off as tourists snapped pictures on their phones.

'Very confined (well built building).

His son, Eric Trump, said the flames had broken out in a residential apartment and also thanked the fire and police departments for their response.

Officers noticed that the man was bleeding from his nose and mouth area and was very fearful, according to court documents. A 37-year-old man suspected of robbing a Colorado Springs Subway while armed with a knife was arrested Thursday night.

Trump was mollified when the law was altered to specify that existing buildings didn't need to install sprinklers unless they underwent gut renovations.

Mr Brassner, an art dealer, was a friend of the late artist Andy Warhol and is mentioned several times in the legendary New Yorker's 1989 autobiography The Andy Warhol Diaries.

However Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, Daniel Nigro said shortly after that the blaze was not yet under control due to the considerable amount of smoke in the building. Twitter video showed flames shooting out of the building: President Trump was at the White House and not Trump Tower.

The upper-level residential floors are not equipped with fire sprinklers, according to Nigro.

On Sunday, The New York Daily News pointed out that Trump led the charge against a bid by city officials to consider installing sprinklers in all residential buildings, following after fatal fires in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
