A 67-year-old man died after a fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City on Saturday night.

The FDNY said that six firefighters suffered injuries.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said Secret Service agents accompanied firefighters to check on the Trump residence. The city police department said glass is present on the floor, and it does not want the public inside while the investigation continues.

"We found fire on the 50th floor of the building".

Property records obtained by The Associated Press indicate Brassner was an art dealer who had purchased his 50th-floor unit in 1996. That's what they said.

Some time later, Trump changed his rhetoric and spent almost $3m to fit sprinklers in all units of World Tower near the United Nations, claiming the move made the tenants feel more secured. The artist signed and dedicated at least one print to him. Brassner is mentioned several times in Warhol's posthumously published diaries, with references including lunch dates and shared taxis.

Brassner's apartment was valued at $2.5 million, according to bankruptcy documents from 2015.

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. "We had many floors to search, and stairways, and right now the only civilian injury is to the occupant of that apartment".

Trump's son, Eric, thanked the fire department in a tweet and said the fire was extinguished. Reports say that they were not required in New York City high-rises when the tower was completed in 1983. Although, then-mayor and long-time Trump pal Rudy Giuliani ended by passing the regulation, it did not affect the real estate developer as Trump Tower was not required to install sprinklers - because it was built 15 years before the law. "Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition", the official account for the Fire Department of NY tweeted at the time.

President Donald Trump has an office and home at the 58-story building, but was in Washington at the time.

So far, President Trump's only public reaction to the deadly Saturday fire at the midtown building that bears his name was a single tweet in which he incorrectly claimed that the fire was out (it wasn't brought under control until an hour later) and talked up the high quality of the building.
