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.
Mr Nigro said firefighters and Secret Service members checked on the condition of Mr Trump's apartment. "The apartment is quite large", according to the Financial Times. "Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m.
The Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) advised that an apartment resident had suffered serious injuries.
The man who died was found inside an apartment on the 50th floor of the Manhattan skyscraper after flames broke out Saturday afternoon.Читайте также: Gold Coast, Australia, April 3, 2018
Nigro later said the fire wasn't fully under control, around an hour after Trump tweeted the fire was out, as the fire commissioner said there was still smoke in the building. According to Nigro, 200 firefighters and EMS personnel responded to the scene. No concern about firefighter injuries in battling the blaze or two civilians injured by falling debris.
Fire at Trump Tower is out.
After the fire, Trump's former opposition to a law requiring sprinklers in residential high-rise buildings came under scrutiny.
He later tempered his criticism for the March 1999 bill after learning it was amended to allow buildings built before that year to not have sprinklers unless it was completely renovated, the Daily News reported.
The headquarters of the Trump Organization are on the 26th floor.
Four other people were reportedly injured from the four-alarm fire, which occurred around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, CBS New York reported. It also complimented the building saying it was "well built". "My husband is disabled and we were helpless".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
