Many Trapped, ‘number Of Fatalities’ As Massive Fire Engulfs London Tower Block by johneewalker: 09:59am On 6 Jun
A massive fire which engulfed a tower block in London in the early hours of Wednesday has resulted in fatalities and left fifty people hospitalised.


London fire commissioner, Dany Cotton, confirmed that there were a “number of fatalities” as a result of the inferno.

“I am very sad to confirm that there have been a number of fatalities. I cannot confirm the number at this time due to the size and complexity of this building. It would clearly be wrong for me to speculate further. Equally the cause of this fire is not known at this stage,” she said in a statement.

Hundreds of people reside in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower in north Kensington.

Several persons are reportedly unaccounted for while some are trapped in their homes as the fire rages on.

Evacuation is currently ongoing in the tower, according to the London Metropolitan police.

About forty fire engines and over 200 firefighters were deployed to the scene of the incident.

Dan Daly, London Fire Brigade assistant commissioner, was quoted by the BBC as saying that firefighters are “working extremely hard in very difficult conditions to tackle this fire”.



“This is a large and very serious incident and we have deployed numerous resources and specialist appliances.”

The tower block which contains 120 flats is said to have undergone a two-year, £10m refurbishment that was completed last year.



A resident group reportedly issued series of warnings of the tower being a fire risk.
