The fire is believed to have been caused by an equipment malfunction and is not regarded as suspicious, the New York Post reported Friday. It added the apartment was sold last year for $6.9 million.

Trump International Hotel and Tower was built in 1996 and is not the building in which President Donald Trump maintains an office and residence.
