(NEW YORK) — One person was killed in a four-alarm blaze at Trump Tower on Saturday, according to NYPD.
NYPD said members of FDNY removed a 67-year-old male who was unconscious and unresponsive from the building. He was transported to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital where he was pronounced deceased, according to NYPD.
FDNY said units responded just after 5:30 p.m. and 200 firefighters and EMS members were on the scene.
A large apartment on the 50th floor of the skyscraper at 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan was entirely on fire, FDNY said.
There were no evacuations, but some residents self-evacuated and the rest of the building had a considerable amount of smoke, according to officials.
Four firefighters suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to FDNY commisioner Daniel Nigro.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
President Trump, who was in Washington this weekend, thanked firefighters on Twitter.
“Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!”
