Two of the six firefighters are suffering from burns.

"It was a very hard fire, as you can imagine", Nigro told reporters outside the building in midtown Manhattan. As you can imagine, the apartment is quite large, we are 50 storeys up. We're 50 stories up.

The president, whose name is on the building, tweeted shortly after images of the blaze and billowing smoke showed up on screens nationwide.

Officials have not disclosed the cause of the blaze. "And then we saw the counterterrorism guys suit up", said Jordan Podell.

Almost 20 years ago, the man who was one of the biggest real estate moguls in the city lobbied against legislation that said sprinklers needed to be installed in all residential buildings. Instead they received a notification from an automated alarm system that there was a fire inside.

And early talks for the bill said all buildings be required to pay to install sprinklers - at the displeasure of many real estate moguls, including Trump.

The U.S. Secret Service was made aware of the incident, ABC has learned. Some smoke reached the rest of the building, whether it's in the apartment, I don't know right now.

Personally I am happy, it's still a three-year contract. It has put us in a very good position in the table. My genuine feeling is he deserves it.

Nigro said the fire broke out at around 5:30 p.m. and fire engines and ladders were there within five minutes.

Fire officials said no member of the Trump family was in the building at the time. Reports say that they were not required in New York City high-rises when the tower was completed in 1983. But Trump's change of heart came only after the legislation was revised to include a grandfathering provision that allowed pre-1999 buildings to forgo the sprinkler requirements unless they underwent a major renovation.

The man was taken to hospital in a critical condition, where he later died, according to New York Fire Department (NYFD) Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

The fire at Trump Tower comes three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building, according to CNN affiliate WCBS-TV. "Thank you!" he tweeted.

"Although New York has taller towers and more high-rise residents than any other city in the nation, no sprinklers are required in apartment buildings here".

Son Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, offered similar sentiments to his father, and Don Jr.
