The 67-year-old person who died following a fire broke out Saturday in his flat to the 50th floor of Trump Tower at nyc was a dominant art dealer who was buddies with Andy Warhol, but'd also fallen on hard times.

"The apartment was virtually entirely on fire", said Daniel Nigro, commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, to the New York Post.

President Donald Trump has a home in the tower, but no one was there at the time of the fire.

Inning accordance with The New York City Times, Mr. Trump was among the designers in the late 1990s who lobbied versus sprinklers in structures.

According to ABC News, the four-alarm fire began at around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.

The fire is reported to be on the 50th floor of the high-rise, which contains both apartments and office space.

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 sustained minor injuries while tackling the blaze. "Firemen (and women) did a great job", Trump tweeted.

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