President's insensitive remarks about Trump Tower fire

Fire breaks out on 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City

A 67-year-old man has died after a fire broke out at his apartment on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in NY.

"Fire sprinklers were not required in New York City high-rises when Trump Tower was completed in 1983", they continued.

Brassner was a friend of the late artist Andy Warhol and is mentioned several times in the legendary New Yorker's 1989 autobiography, The Andy Warhol Diaries.

Brassner was pulled from the burning section of the building alive, but police said he died a short time later at the hospital, according to the Associated Press.

It has since emerged that he had struggled financially and filed for bankruptcy in 2015.

Fire crews responded to the four-alarm blaze just before 6 p.m. ET after receiving a call at 5:35 p.m. from an automatic alarm system, Nigro said.

The President, who owns the 58-storey building, took to Twitter 45 minutes after the fire broke out to praise firefighters and to highlight the structural integrity of his tower.

"The fire was a hard fire". The FDNY declared the fire under control around 8 p.m. Firefighters - along with secret service - went to check on the president's apartment in the building.

The FDNY said that six firefighters suffered injuries fighting the blaze. That one was characterized as an electrical fire, and was mostly confined to the building's roof. When asked to comment on the President's tweet, Nigro said the building "sure stood up quite well". "THANK YOU!", Trump tweeted.

Sprinklers are not installed on the Trump Tower floor where a fire broke out on Saturday.

The council ultimately passed Local Law 10 in 1999 mandating sprinklers in halls and apartments of all residential buildings with four or more units.

The cause of the fire is unclear.

The Mayor Rudolph Giuliani era bill was eventually altered to exclude older buildings such as Trump Tower (built in 1979 and opened in 1983), or buildings for which permits had already been submitted, such as Trump's 72-floor tower opposite the United Nations building in New York, Trump World Tower.

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