  • Fire breaks out on 50th floor of Trump Tower in New York City

Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan in 2009.

Videos posted to social media showed flames and smoke billowing from the structure's windows. No cause for the fire has been revealed as of yet.

The first narrative unfolded through official alerts and images from the New York Fire Department, which painted a picture of an extraordinarily challenging - and ultimately fatal - blaze to contain and extinguish.

"Very confined (well built building)", Trump tweeted Saturday, about an hour after the fire broke out.

Tower houses Trump Organization headquarters and is one of the president's private residences. "The apartment is quite large". "Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m. Residents and employees were evacuated from the skyscraper and about 200 firefighters worked to put out the blaze on the 50th floor of the building, four of whom sustained minor injuries. "THANK YOU!" Mr Trump tweeted.

Commissioner Daniel Nigro said no member of President Trump's family was in the building at the time.

Brassner was pulled from the burning section of the building alive, but police said he died a short time later at the hospital, according to the Associated Press.

Firefighters were sweeping adjacent apartments and stairwells to determine the source of the blaze in one of the skyscraper's residential apartments, according to fire officials.

Neither Mr. Trump or any of his household remained in the structure at the time of the fire.

Four other people were reportedly injured from the four-alarm fire, which occurred around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, CBS New York reported.

While it's uncertain the number of fires have actually been at the structure because it opened in 1984, an extreme fire in 1982 set building back 2 months, inning accordance with amNewYork.

"The upper floors which are residence floors are not sprinklered", Nigro said. She told a reporter from the Post: "There was no evacuation system in place".
