UK: Six dead after blaze tears through west London residential tower

News London, United Kingdom - 14 June 2017
At least six people are dead after a huge fire raged on June 14, 2017 at a west London tower block, and police expect that number to rise. Eyewitnesses described people trapped in the burning Grenfell Tower, in north Kensington, screaming for help and yelling for their children to be saved. Firefighters rescued many people and are still trying to put the fire out in the 24-storey block 12 hours on. Police say there may still be people in the building who are unaccounted for. During the night, eyewitnesses said they saw lights - thought to be mobile phones or torches - flashing at the top of the block of flats, and trapped residents coming to their windows - some holding children. It is understood that "several hundred" people would have been in the block when the fire broke out shortly after midnight, most of them sleeping.
