A massive fire ripped through a 27 storey building ( Grenfell Towers) on Wednesday morning in London, killing several and injuring many more with many residents still trapped inside.
The fire brigade said 40 fire engines and 200 firefighters had been called to the blaze site at Grenfell Tower, which has 120 flats.”Fire is from second to top floor of the 27 storey building,” the fire service said on Twitter.
London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said there had been “a number of fatalities” but she could not say how many because of the “size and complexity” of the building.
An emergency rest centre has been opened for those affected at the Harrow Centre, in Freston Road. There are also local collections under way for spare clothes and toiletries.
The fire could not be reported before because the building does not have fire alarms which has raised a question regarding the safety of the residents living in these building.
The police are pushing the public away from the site because there is speculation that the building might collapse.
