Latest details on deadly Trump Tower fire that liberals are celebrating

Fire marshals sift through charred Trump Tower apartment for clues after blaze killed tenant

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).

200 firefighters were called to the skyscraper in NY last night.

"He says about 200 firefighters battled the blaze, with four suffering minor injuries".

No member of US President Donald Trump's family were present at the building when the fire broke out, media reports said. That one was characterized as an electrical fire, and was mostly confined to the building's roof. He thanked the firefighters for their fearless work in containing the blaze, and then pointed out that the building was a "well built building". Following updates into this construction code demanded commercial Sky Scrapers to put in the sprinklers retroactively, but owners of elderly residential high-rises are not required to install sprinklers except the construction undergoes major renovations.

"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".

Nigro described the dwelling as "quite large" and said it had "quite a lot of furniture and quite a lot of fire load".

MI arguably had better quality scoring chances late in the third period, but that didn't matter when all was said and done. This is the team's first season without Berenson behind the bench - he retired after 32 seasons as Wolverines head coach.

ABC News reported that the victim, Todd Brassner, was pulled unconscious from his apartment at the luxury Fifth Avenue sky scraper and died later at the hospital.

"We had many floors to search, and stairways, and right now the only civilian injury is to the occupant of that apartment". While the rest of the building had a "considerable amount of smoke", it was not immediately clear if it reached Mr. Trump's unit, he said...

Nigro said in a press conference that the cause of Saturday's fire is still unclear.

"The structure sure stood rather well", Nigro stated. He then recanted once the legislation passed with grandfathering provisions that meant existing buildings did not need to install them, saying that he understood they made residents "feel safer".

Multiple street closures slowed foot and vehicle traffic surrounding the tower, from East 55th Street to East 57th Street from Fifth Avenue to Madison Avenue, according to officials.
