Trump Tower fire

One killed in apartment fire at Trump Tower in New York

The victim, a male resident, died at the hospital and has not yet been identified, they said.

US President Donald Trump has a home and an office in the building, but is currently in Washington.

The fire was reported to be on the 50th floor of the high-rise, which contains apartments and office space.

The president tweeted that the fire was out, and had been "very confined" as the tower is a "well-built building".

Streets surrounding the building in Midtown Manhattan have been closed off.
