One person died and four firefighters were injured in a fire that broke out on the 50 floor of Trump Tower in New York on Saturday night, according to the New York Post.

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro tweeted at about 8 p.m.: "We found fire on the 50th floor of the building".

The four firefighters also suffered smoke inhalation in the blaze, but were expected to recover.

Still, Trump said at the time that he would spend $3 million to outfit Trump World's 370 units with sprinklers because it would make tenants feel safer, according to a New York Times article from the era. It was ruled under control around 9 p.m., two hours after it was originally reported, the FDNY tweeted. "The apartment was quite large and 50 stories up", he said.

Some fire-safety advocates in 1999 pushed for a requirement that older apartment buildings be retrofitted with sprinklers, but officials in the administration of then-mayor Rudy Giuliani said that would be too expensive.

Six firefighters were also injured in the blaze. Firemen (and women) did a great job. A man who was in the apartment that caught fire was taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries, officials said. The legislation was stimulated on by a significant fire in a so-called "fire-resistant" home block without any sprinklers on NY city's Upper West Side the previous December, and another in a Brooklyn housing project the very same month where corridor sprinklers stopped working.

The cause of Brassner's death was not immediately known. "It's a well-built building", he said.

Meanwhile, Nigro confirmed that no member of the Trump family was inside the 664-foot tower Saturday.

An apartment fire in President Trump's commercial and residential skyscraper has left one man dead. 200 Firefighters and EMS - emergency medical services - members are on scene.

Almost two decades ago, Trump, then one of the Big Apple's most prominent real estate moguls, lobbied against Mayor Rudy Giuliani-era legislation that considered whether sprinklers should be installed in all residential buildings after two fatal fires in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
