Art Dealer Killed in Trump Tower Fire

Art Dealer Killed in Trump Tower Fire”

Fire consumed part of the 50th floor of Trump Tower late Saturday, claiming the life of a 67-year old man who lived there.

Fire sprinklers were not required in New York City highrises when Trump Tower was completed in 1983.

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. Brassner had hit a rough patch recently, including health issues and bankruptcy, according to a filing cited by the Post.

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.

Some 200 firefighters battled the blaze at the skyscraper in Manhattan on Saturday evening, with the apartment said to be "virtually entirely on fire" when they arrived.

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

Whatever higher production occurred is mainly linked to new order growth and favourable demand conditions, the survey pointed out. Jobs growth was signalled for the forty-third straight month, although the pace of increase eased to a seven-month low.

The fire was later brought under control. Firefighters - along with secret service - went to check on the president's apartment in the building. That one was characterized as an electrical fire, and was mostly confined to the building's roof.

Nigro described the apartment where the fire began as "quite large" and containing "quite a lot of furniture", which led to its spread.

Fire officials say the Trump family wasn't home when the fire broke out. "THANK YOU!", Trump tweeted. He thanked the responders as he insinuated in his tweet that the fire did not spread through the Trump Tower since it was "well-built".

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. "Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m.

After the fire, Trump's former opposition to a law requiring sprinklers in residential high-rise buildings came under scrutiny.

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