A four alarm fire on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan claimed the life of the resident in the apartment on Saturday evening. Two firefighters had burn-related injuries, and 4 others received non-life-threatening injuries, according to ABC. The incident broke out at around 5:30 p.m. with smoke and flames shooting from that floor. FDNY was there within 5 minutes.

We found fire on the 50th floor of the building. The apartment was entirely on fire. Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition –#FDNY Commissioner Nigro gives update on 721 5th Ave 4th alarm

“We had many floors to search, and stairways, and right now the only civilian injury is to the occupant of that apartment.” FDNY

The department declared the fire was “under control” at about 8 p.m.,   About 200 firefighters battled the blaze.

The resident who died was Todd Blassner, 67, who initially was listed in critical condition at Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, but later died. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

President Trump was in Washington when the fire erupted. That didn’t stop the leftists from celebrating the fire that took a life and injured firefighters. Most of them were incensed that Donald Trump said his building was “well built” because the residential floors do not have sprinklers. But the fire commissioner, Daniel Nigro, stated that the building “sure stood up quite well.” This was the 2nd fire at Trump Tower so far in 2018.

There are oodles of negative left-wingers responding to that tweet, but here are other lovely wishes, as previously reported by CFL:

Trump Tower is on fire. It’s because Donald Trump was inside of the tower, and he poured gasoline on his head, then struck a match and set his entire body aflame. He died a long, painful death that will stain the history books for all time. He also had diarrhea at the last second
