The person who died was a resident of the building's 50th floor who had been taken to the hospital in critical condition, department spokeswoman Angelica Conroy told CNN.
The fire was contained to the 50th floor of the tower, located on Fifth Avenue in New York.
The four firefighters injured had non-life threatening injuries, Conroy said.
No members of the Trump family were at the tower during the fire, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. President Donald Trump tweeted the fire was out and "very confined" in the "well built building" and congratulated the firefighters.
His son, Eric Trump, also congratulated the firefighters, saying "the @FDNY and @NYPD are truly some of the most incredible people anywhere!"
