ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A deadly fire over the weekend in New York's Trump Tower is raising new concerns over the safety of high-rise residential building.

One man died when flames tore through his 50th floor apartment.

The unit didn't have sprinklers because they were not required  when Trump Tower opened in the 80's. This fire got us wondering about high-rises in metro Atlanta what safety measures are in place for people here.

CBS46's Aiyana Cristal went looking for answers.
