Fire in Trump Tower in NY kills 1

Fire in Trump Tower in NY kills 1

Depending on who you followed more closely, there were two accounts of the fire Saturday night that tore through a 50th-floor apartment in Trump Tower, President Donald Trump's namesake building on Fifth Avenue in NY.

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.

Brassner was mentioned multiple times in Warhol's autobiography, according to the New York Daily News.

Todd Brassner, 67, was unconscious when pulled from his apartment in the Midtown skyscraper and rushed to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital.

The all came in just before 6 pm Saturday and within minutes, about 200 firefighters and EMS workers arrived on scene.

The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) tweeted that the fire at Trump Tower had been upgraded to a Category 4 alarm fire from a Category 3 fire alarm.

Besides the one fatality, six FDNY firefighters suffered nonlife-threatening injuries - two of them burn-related, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said during a press conference.

"It was a very hard fire, as you can imagine", Mr Nigro said outside the building in midtown Manhattan.

Next iPhone May Have Touchless Gesture Controls and Curved Screens
Using OLED technology, the company might introduce a new device with a screen that gradually curves inward from top to bottom. Although curved displays and touchless input may still be years away, greater use of OLED displays is expected this year.

The fire was finally declared under control at around 7:45pm.

Trump praised the building's construction as a "well built building" and lauded firefighters who managed to put out the blaze on Saturday.

The bill was later passed in March 1999 allowing buildings built before that year to not have sprinklers unless there were major renovations.

Trump Tower's fire-suppression systems were up to code, and there were no violations witnessed, an FDNY source said. "The apartment is quite large".

"Fire at Trump Tower is out", Trump tweeted.

Six firefighters also sustained minor injuries in the blaze. Firemen (and women) did a great job.

Some residents said they didn't get any notification from building management to leave the building.
