It was ruled under control around 9 pm, two hours after it was originally reported.Six firefighters suffered injuries that are not life threatening, Conroy said. No members of the Trump family were at the tower during the fire, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

Before news of the death, President Donald Trump congratulated firefighters and tweeted that the fire was out and “very confined” in the “well built building.”
