[Ed. – Apparently an entire apartment was engulfed. Will be interesting to find out what happened here.]
A critically injured 67-year-old man died after being transported to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital. officials said according to the Daily Mail.
Four firefighters were also reportedly injured but suffered non-life threatening injuries.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to announce that the fire had been contained. President Trump also thanked the men and women of the Fire Department of New York for doing a “great job.”
“Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!” President Trump wrote.
