One man was killed and six firefighters received minor injuries in an apartment fire on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in NY on Saturday, in a blaze that was quickly extinguished, authorities said.

Daniel Nigro, commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, told reporters that the blaze was "a very hard fire, as you can imagine".

Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, "It's a well-built building".

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro tweeted at about 8 p.m.: "We found fire on the 50th floor of the building". While there was a "considerable amount of smoke", they have not yet determined whether or not the smoke reached President Trump's unit.

"The apartment was entirely on fire. So true Jesse! @WattersWorld", Trump wrote. Members of the Secret Service were on hand to determine if the residences of the First Family were damaged.
