On April 8, more than 200 New York City firefighters and emergency service personnel responded to a fire at Trump Tower, a 58-story high-rise building with commercial use on the lower floors (including the headquarters of the Trump Organization) and 263 residential units on the upper floors (including the three-floor ­penthouse that is the private residence of Donald and Melania Trump). The NYFD declared the fire an accident, caused by multiple overloaded electrical power strips in the 50th-floor apartment of Todd Brassner. By the time firefighters reached the apartment, it was almost entirely ablaze.
