1 killed in fire at Trump Tower


Todd Brassner took to Mount Sinai Roosevelt hospital but later died. In fact, fire safety experts say that is pretty common.

"This is a very hard fire, as you can imagine. The apartment was quite large and 50 stories up".

The famed artist noted that the pair grabbed lunch together at a Warhol's factory on Broadway in December 1976. Brassner lunched at Warhol's factory in Manhattan in December 1976, according to "The Andy Warhol Diaries".

Nigro noted that the building's residential floors lack sprinklers.

He added that the building did not have sprinklers.

No members of the Trump family were in the tower at the time of the blaze.

The call came in at about 5:35 p.m.

Nigro said units went up with the Secret Service to check President Trump's residence.

According to a 1999 New York Post report, Trump was the most prominent member of a powerful real estate lobby opposed to reform, and complained he couldn't afford to install sprinklers. He said it had been "very confined" as the tower is a "well-built building".

A 67-year-old man found unconscious when firefighters pulled him out of his apartment.

"When I saw the television, I thought we were finished", Masson said.

"I started praying that this was our end".

Some residents said they didn't get any notification from building management to evacuate. One resident, who happens to be friends with Michael Cohen, said he received a message from the president's lawyer to leave.

The pair grew up together, Shields said. "They said, 'Oh, Donald's on the phone and he was saying that there's going to be a big movement to retrofit all the high-rise buildings in NY with sprinklers'". Some smoke reached some of floors above the fire, he said, but it was unclear if it had reached Mr. Trump's residence. It said the four firefighters had "non-life threatening" injuries and that the blaze had been brought "under control".

The building includes apartments and office space. Six firefighters were also injured in the fire, ABC reported.
