London, June 14: London seems to be deep trouble with back-to-back terrorist attacks and now, this fire break out. A huge fire has raged in Grenfell Tower, West London. 200 firefighters are trying to soothe down the fire but everything goes in vain. The tower block is 24 storeys high and contains 200 flats which are all blazed away. Speculations are that the building had started burning from tenth floor.
Local council leader Nick Paget-Brown said the authorities are still trying to "establish how many people have been injured or sadly lost their lives." There were people seen jumping from the window. People located anywhere in London can see the smoke rising high. More than 20 ambulances have been deployed to the scene as paramedics are treating the injured and others evacuated from the building.
Residents claim that many people are still trapped inside. London Fire Brigade assistant commissioner says, “This is a large and very serious incident and we have deployed numerous resources and specialist appliances.” The building is covered in ashes so much so that it might also fall, say the local residents.
