Man killed in Trump Tower fire

A firefighter looks out from the window of a fire damaged apartment in Trump Tower in NY on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Two people were injured in the fire, which officials said may have been caused by electrical heaters inside the cooling tower.

Saturday's fire was the second incident this year.

No members of the Trump family were in the tower at the time of the blaze. Commissioner Nigro said on Saturday that there is extra fire protection at Trump Tower when Mr. Trump is there. He then recanted once the legislation passed with grandfathering provisions that meant existing buildings did not need to install them, saying that he understood they made residents "feel safer".

Journalist Roland S. Martin called out the president with a straightforward comment, asking him to "Stop touting the building". Construction on the 72-floor building opposite the United Nations began in 1999. The apartment was entirely on fire. There is significant smoke damage to the upper floorings.

Trump acted like he didn't even care about the death or the other injuries.

The fire, which injured four firefighters, was under control by approximately 8 p.m. Saturday, according to the Post.
