1 person killed, 4 injured after fire breaks out at Trump Tower

NEW YORK, N.Y. — One person is dead and four others are injured after a fire broke out at the Trump Tower in Manhattan on Saturday evening, according to the New York City Fire Department.

The person who died was a resident of the building's 50th floor who had been taken to the hospital in critical condition, department spokeswoman Angelica Conroy told CNN.

Firefighters first responded to the 4-alarm fire on the 50th floor of the building at around 5:30 p.m., but casualties were only reported about three hours later.

FDNY officials said four firefighters suffered burns and other non-life threatening injuries.

According to Commissioner Nigro, the apartment was entirely on fire and tough to manage.

200 firefighters and EMS members responded to the scene, searching through all the floors and stairways.

As of 8:30 p.m., the fire department announced the flames were under control.

No members of the Trump family were in the building at the time of the fire, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

President Donald Trump tweeted the fire was out and "very confined" in the "well built building" and congratulated the firefighters.

His son, Eric Trump, also congratulated the firefighters, saying "the @FDNY and @NYPD are truly some of the most incredible people anywhere!"
