Fire at Trump Tower

"He couldn't have already been nicer", real-estate agent Dolly Lenz, who offered him that the flat, told The New York Post. He was rather pleasant to be with. He has been identified by police as Todd Brassner, 67, reported CNN.

According to the NY Daily News, Brassner sold a variety of Warhol prints, including a 1967 self-portrait that netting a $601,000 price tag in 2007.

According to a bankruptcy filing from 2016, Brassner was an art collector and dealer. "His family is wealthy". According to documents, his family had stopped helping him pursue buying and selling art at the end of 2014, and in the last few years he had been "plagued with debilitating medical problems that have made it hard for him to function".

However Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, Daniel Nigro said shortly after that the blaze was not yet under control due to the considerable amount of smoke in the building.

President Trump tweeted before the news of the death that the fire was out and "very confined" in the "well built building" and congratulated the firefighters.

Four firefighters were injured while putting out the fire, but their injuries were not life-threatening.

Donald Trump speaks at the 100th Anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 at Trump Tower on April 5, 2011 in New York City.

Trump Tower, which opened in 1984, is located on Fifth Ave. and 57th midtown Manhattan. Firemen (and females) did a excellent task.

Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, "It's a well-built building".

Early talks for the proposed bill suggested that all residential buildings be required to install sprinklers, which irked developers, including Trump.

In a statement, the New York City Fire Department said: 'This was a very hard fire. At the time the building was constructed, the city didn't require every unit have sprinklers, so this unit didn't have one. The upper floors, the residence floors, are not sprinklered'.
