A man has died after a fire broke out at New York City's Trump Tower - the home of the U.S. president. He was later identified as Todd Brassner, an art dealer who sold Andy Warhol paintings.
The fire commissioner said a 50th floor apartment was "virtually entirely on fire" when firefighters arrived Saturday evening.
The cause of Brassner's death was not immediately known.
The victim was a resident of the tower who died after being taken to hospital with critical injuries, fire officials said.
"President Trump tweeted that the fire was "Very confined" - adding in parentheses - "well built building".
Trump Tower opened in 1984.
The president's middle son Eric Trump also tweeted about the fire, but he thanked the NY fire department for extinguishing the fire.
President Donald Trump, his wife Melania and son Barron were not in the NY apartment this weekend, where he maintains a three-story penthouse residence.
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. Nigro noticed no member of this Trump loved ones has been at the 664-foot tower during some time of this flame.
The same can not be said of Todd Brassner, an obscure arts collector whom local firefighters found unconscious in his apartment on the tower's 50th floor. No concern about firefighter injuries in battling the blaze or two civilians injured by falling debris.
"It's a well-built building", Nigro said.
"It was a very hard fire, as you can imagine".
Nigro said firefighters and Secret Service members checked on the condition of Trump's apartment.
A fire also broke out at the building in January. The apartments are listed on floors 66-68, although the building is technically only 58 stories high.
"The president's penthouse residence and the Trump Organization's offices are in Trump Tower, but he's spent little time there since taking office". The headquarters of the Trump Organisation is on the 26th floor.
