He warned then that the situation was "still not considered to be under control" due to "a considerable amount of smoke" in the building. Instead, Trump talked about the success of the building's construction. "There are four Firefighters with non-life-threatening injuries".

The fire at Trump Tower comes three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building, according to CNN affiliate WCBS-TV.

After the bills were compiled Trump called city officials and made the argument that installing sprinkler systems throughout entire buildings was too expensive, the New York Times reported at the time. He also said that there was significant smoke damage sustained to the upper floors during Saturday's fire.

Todd Brassner lived on the 50th floor of the Fifth Avenue luxury high-rise, and was in his apartment when the fire broke out around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

And like his father, Trump's son Eric Trump hailed the first responders as "truly some of the most incredible people anywhere" for extinguishing a fire "in a residential apartment". "If you look at the fire deaths in NY, nearly all of them are in one- or two-family houses".

Donald Trump pushed to block a requirement for fire sprinklers in city high-rises in the late 1990s. He said it had been "very confined" as the tower is a "well-built building". Nigro said no Trump family members were inside at the time. "Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m.

Navas then had to keep out a strike from Koke as the visitors looked to complete the turnaround at the Bernabeu. "We're going to play the whole team of Real Madrid which has good players", Partey added.

It's not yet known the specific cause of 67-year-old's death.

Officials have not disclosed the cause of the blaze.

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

He failed to mention, however, that the residential floors of the building-which also contains Trump's home and the offices of the Trump Organization-lack sprinklers. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died, said spokeswoman Angelica Conroy of the Fire Department.

Streets surrounding the building in Midtown Manhattan were closed off during the fire.
