Trump Tower Has Its Second Fire of the Year

  • Fire trucks arrive outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York

A video posted on Twitter by the fire department after Trump's tweet showed a fire still burning high up in the building, though it wasn't immediately clear how recently the video was taken. Trump, the Times reported, called city officials in NY to argue that the sprinkler systems were too expensive-costing up to $4 per square foot and potentially thousands per apartment.

There are reportedly no fire sprinklers on the upper floors of the building, but the Post wrote they're not required by law in buildings of that age (Trump Tower opened in 1983).

Trump's then-under construction Trump World Tower near the United Nations was also grandfathered in because he had submitted building permits before the local law was signed.

Trump Tower, which is normally open to the public 8 a.m.to 10 p.m., has been closed off.

"This was a very hard fire".

Brassner was the only victim of a fire that broke out at Trump Tower Saturday evening.

However Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, Daniel Nigro said shortly after that the blaze was not yet under control due to the considerable amount of smoke in the building.


He added that the building did not have sprinklers. Very confined (well-built building). "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.

It's not yet known the specific cause of 67-year-old's death. Firemen (and women) did a great job.

Officials have not disclosed the cause of the blaze.

Mr. Trump's family has an apartment on the top floors of the 58-story building, but he has spent little time in NY since taking office. "I'm very sorry for his passing away", Trump Tower resident Sergio Bermudes said.

The city buildings department said Sunday the building did have working hard-wired smoke detectors, and that the fire department was first notified of the blaze by the detectors in the building's heating and ventilation system.

Son Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, offered similar sentiments to his father, and Don Jr.
