1 person dead, at least 4 hurt after fire erupts at Trump Tower in Manhattan

At least one person died and four others were injured after a fire broke out in Trump Tower in New York City on Saturday, police and fire officials said.

The FDNY previously said that one person who was inside the apartment was critical, adding that four firefighters also were hurt.

"We found fire on the 50th floor of the building," FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said. "The apartment was entirely on fire. Members pushed in heroically, they were knocking down the fire and found one occupant of the apartment who is in critical condition."

Nigro went on to describe the fire as "difficult" and said the high rise "had a considerable amount of smoke."
 

The FDNY's alert system tweeted that the blaze was "under control." The cause of the fire was unclear.

Video circulating on social media showed orange flames billowing from the building.
