Thick black smoke and fire was seen coming from the skyscraper at around 18:00 (2200 GMT). Instead, Trump talked about the success of the building's construction. The first broke out on January 8, injuring two civilians and a firefighter, reportedly due to an electrical issue.
Meanwhile, the commercial portions of Trump Tower have their required fire sprinklers, the DOB rep said. Brassner had an extensive collection of prized works of art, including a portrait of himself by Andy Warhol, as well as hundreds of guitars and ukeleles, according to the bankruptcy documents. That update came after Trump's tweet claiming that the fire had been put out.
According to ABC News, the four-alarm fire began at around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 7. It's because Trump Tower was built before new laws went into place about 20 years ago - new laws that grandfathered pre-existing residential high rises from requiring sprinklers. Owners of older residential high-rises are still not required to install sprinklers unless the building undergoes major renovations. "But the problem with the bill is that it doesn't address the buildings that need sprinklers the most". Very confined (well-built building).
Some fire-safety advocates pushed for a requirement that older apartment buildings be retrofitted with sprinklers when New York City passed a law requiring them in new residential highrises in 1999, but officials in the administration of then-mayor Rudy Giuliani said that would be too expensive.

TDP's parliamentary leader Y S Chowdhary said, "We are fighting for Andhra Pradesh's five crore people". However, it was never taken up for discussion due to continuous disruptions in the Parliament .
"This was a very hard fire. Firemen (and women) did a great job", the president wrote on Twitter at 6:42 p.m.
An FDNY spokesman told DailyMail.com on Sunday that the cause of the blaze remains uncertain.
The cause of the blaze is unknown, but there were no sprinklers in that unit or on the upper floors of Trump Tower.
President Trump's business is based at Trump Tower and also has a residence there, but he has spent little time in NY since taking office. The four-alarm blaze at the 58-story building on Fifth Avenue at 57th Street in Midtown was quickly quelled, although not before debris from the blaze fell to the streets below.
