One resident told the New York Times she received no notification that the building was on fire or any calls to evacuate.

According to ABC News, the four-alarm fire began at around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.

The fire engulfed a large apartment on the 50th floor.

Residents from a high rise apartment building on New York's West 60th Street try to keep warm on December 23, 1998, after a fire broke out in two apartments in the building.

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


Mr. Trump tweeted shortly after the fire broke out that his building is "well-built".

"Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition". The victim, Todd Brassner, was a resident of building.

Brassner - a Trump Tower resident identified by U.S. media as an art dealer - was pronounced dead after being taken to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, according to police, which said the medical examiner's office would determine the cause of death as part of an ongoing investigation.

Two decades before he was president, Trump got political when he spent thousands of dollars lobbying City Council members not to pass the bill - because it would be too expensive for his apartment buildings.

Trump Tower is subject to extra law enforcement security.

The FDNY tweeted just before 8 p.m. ET the fire was "under control".

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

"The structure sure stood rather well", Nigro stated. 200 firefighters and EMS are on the scene'.

A fire also broke out at the building in January.
