>> An automatic alarm for a fire in the Trump Tower.>> Investigators on Sunday, looking for clues as to what caused a fire at New York's Trump Tower, that killed one person. 200 firefighters responded to the four alarm blaze Saturday night.>> We found fire on the 50th floor of this building.
00:00:18
Quite a large apartment, the apartment was virtually entirely on fire. This is a very difficult fire, as you can imagine, the apartment is quite large. The rest of the building had considerable amount of smoke.>> The blaze broke out in the apartment of 67 year old Todd Brassner.
00:00:36
He was found unresponsive, and later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. One resident got word of the blaze from a high profile Trump associate.>> There was noise and there was a funny smell. And then, Michael Cohen, who is Trump's lawyer, texted me, and he said, are you in the building?
00:00:51
And I said, I texted him back yes. And he said you should get out, there's a fire.>> The building, with its ground floor shops and restaurants, is also a major tourist hub.>> All of a sudden as we were going up the escalator, there was this massive noise.
00:01:06
And then, all of a sudden, my son said, look up. And there was all this fire, and smoke bellowing out from the window.>> US President, Donald Trump, who has an office, and private residence inside Trump Tower, was not in the building at the time. Nor, was any member of the Trump family.
00:01:22
After the fire was extinguished, Trump tweeted, very confined, well built building. Firemen and women did a great job, thank you!
