After two deadly fires in 1998, NYC legislation was proposed to require sprinklers in all residential buildings.
Four fire fighters were injured in the incident.
Fire at 50th floor at Trump Tower.
The legislation was stimulated on by a significant fire in a so-called "fire-resistant" home block without any sprinklers on NY city's Upper West Side the previous December, and another in a Brooklyn housing project the very same month where corridor sprinklers stopped working. "The apartment is quite large". The White House said Saturday that the first family was not in NY when the fire broke out. Eric Trump stated the fire had actually remained in a cooling tower.
The cause of Saturday's fire is still unknown, according to CBS, as is the cause of the man's death, the Daily News reported. The president lives there in the top three floors when he is in NY.
Subsequent updates to the building code required commercial skyscrapers to install the sprinklers retroactively, but owners of older residential highrises are not required to install sprinklers unless the building undergoes major renovations.
