1 man dead after apartment fire at Trump Tower in New York


Officials say one person has been critically injured in a raging apartment fire at Trump Tower in New York City.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro says the fire broke out after 5:30 p.m. Saturday in an apartment on the 50th floor of the midtown skyscraper.

Nigro says the person who lived in the apartment was taken to a hospital and later died.

He says four firefighters suffered less serious injuries.

Photos posted on Twitter show flames and smoke coming out of windows at the midtown skyscraper.

Skin care guru Peter Thomas Roth was on the ground and captured video of the flames from his cellphone.

President Donald Trump tweeted that the fire was out and said it was "Very confined (well built building)."

Trump's business is based at Trump Tower and his residence is there, but he has spent little time in New York since taking office.
Nigro says no member of the Trump family was at the building on Saturday.
