Agony As Fire Razes London Tower
A massive blaze engulfed a block of flats, a 24-storeyed biulding, in the early hours of Wednesday in West London.
According to CNN, six persons died; 70 people have been rescued and rushed to five hospitals around the capital, while while 20 of them are in critical condition.
Tim Downie, who lives a few hundred feet from the building, said:
‘The Acrid Smell Is Just Horrendous. The Building Has Pretty Much Burnt Out, There Are Just A Few Bits That Are Still Not Burning.”
Another eyewitness, Abdullahi, who lives close to the building said the victims had been standing on the windows, shouting for help, waving white clothes, but no one came to their rescue.
A tweet by London Fire brigade said the cause of the fire was not known at this stage. Meanwhile, fatalities have been confirmed at West London apartment block inferno.
But the Police say the actual number of casualties and the cause of the fire have not been ascertained.
