1 person dead after fire breaks out at Trump Tower in NYC

NEW YORK — One person is dead following a fire that broke out at Trump Tower in New York City, fire officials said.

The 4-alarm fire started around 6:15 p.m. at the 58-story Fifth Avenue Trump Tower skyscraper at 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan, fire officials said.

The unidentified 67-year-old man was unconscious and unresponsive when he was removed from the Midtown skyscraper and rushed to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital. He was initially listed in critical condition, but pronounced dead later in the evening, according to the NYPD.

A Channel 2 Action News viewer in New York City sent us photos showing heaving smoke coming from the building.

FDNY says four firefighters received non-life-threatening injuries while battling the fire. They were part of 200 other fire and emergency workers battling the four-alarm blaze.

President Trump was not in New York City this weekend.

The president's son, Eric Trump, said the fire was in a residential apartment in the building.

President Trump took to Twitter around 6:45 p.m. to thank the FDNY for a great job fighting the fire.

Despite the president's tweet, The FDNY declared the fire under control around 8 p.m.

At its peak, flames raged from the window panes as crumbling pieces of ashen materials could be seen falling from the glass skyscraper onto the pavement below.

Firefighters were sweeping adjacent apartments and stairwells to determine the source of the blaze in one of the skyscraper's residential apartments, according to fire officials.

There were no evacuations, though some residents left on their own, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro confirmed.

Trump Tower, named for the 45th president, is also the headquarters of The Trump Organization and was the campaign nerve center for Donald Trump when he ran on the GOP ticket in the 2016 predential election.

The U.S. Secret Service has been made aware of the incident, ABC News has learned.

This is the second fire reported at Trump Tower in the last few months. Three people were injured putting out a fire in January. Firefighters said a small electrical fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower.
