Art Dealer Killed in Trump Tower Fire

Fire marshals sift through charred Trump Tower apartment for clues after blaze killed tenant

The New York Times reported that firefighters accompanied the Secret Service to "inspect the president's residence".

According to officials, six firefighters suffered minor injuries during their attempts to bring the blaze under control, and an investigation has been launched into what caused the disaster.

President Trump tweeted before the news of the death that the fire was out and "very confined" in the "well built building" and congratulated the firefighters.

The other 1998 blaze left three firefighters dead in NYCHA-run housing for seniors in the Canarse, Brooklyn.

. Owners of such older residential high-rises are required to install sprinklers only when the building undergoes major renovations.

The fire that erupted inside Trump Tower on Saturday killed art dealer Todd Brassner at his 50th floor pad, where the law never mandated sprinklers to be equipped.

Plus, Brassner had reportedly still been alive when Trump issued his tweet. Before moving to the White House, Mr. Trump, the first lady and Barron Trump lived in the triplex penthouse apartment, which occupies sections of floors 56-58, according to Forbes. The legislation was stimulated on by a significant fire in a so-called "fire-resistant" home block without any sprinklers on NY city's Upper West Side the previous December, and another in a Brooklyn housing project the very same month where corridor sprinklers stopped working.

The cause of the fire is now unknown, but according to the New York City Fire Department, the fire was centered in a single large apartment, where they found one critically injured resident.

Nigro described the apartment where the fire began as "quite large" and containing "quite a lot of furniture", which led to its spread. While there was a "considerable amount of smoke", they have not yet determined whether or not the smoke reached President Trump's unit. He then recanted once the legislation passed with grandfathering provisions that meant existing buildings did not need to install them, saying that he understood they made residents "feel safer".

ABC reported that it was the second fire this year at Trump tower. "Fire at Trump Tower is out", he wrote at 6:42 p.m. About 200 firemen and emergency workers were at the scene of the blaze on the 50th floor.
