Fire at Trump Tower leaves 1 civilian dead, 4 firefighters with minor injuries – CBS News

New York City firefigthers on Saturday are battling a fire on the 50th floor of Trump Tower, the fire department tweeted. The FDNY said at 7 p.m. that it was a four-alarm fire. The cause is unknown.

The NYPD said a 51-year-old man from the 50th floor died at a local hospital.

Four firefigthers suffered minor injuries, including two with burns. Over 44 units and about 190 firefighters responded. 

Fire commissioner Dan Nigro said units went up with the Secret Service to check President Trump’s residence. Some smoke reached some of floors above the fire, he said, but it was unclear if it had reached Mr. Trump’s residence. There were no members of first family in residence.

President Trump tweeted at 6:43 p.m. that the fire had been extinguished, although Nigro said it wasn’t under control due to the smoke conditions on the upper floors.

A federal judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit that challenged Massachusetts’ 20-year ban on assault weapons, delivering a significant victory to gun-control advocates and to Attorney General Maura Healey, who had warned sellers of “copycat” firearms that they risked prosecution.

In his ruling, US District Judge William Young of Massachusetts wrote that the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines does not violate the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment.

“The AR-15 and its analogs, along with large capacity magazines, are simply not weapons within the original meaning of the individual constitutional right to ‘bear Arms,’ ” Young wrote in a 47-page ruling. “In the absence of federal legislation, Massachusetts is free to ban these weapons and large-capacity magazines. Other states are equally free to leave them unregulated and available to their law-abiding citizens. These policy matters are simply not of constitutional moment.” (Read more)
