A 24-story tower block on Latimer Road in west London has been engulfed in a horrifying blaze, with reports saying people have been trapped in flats in the upper stories.
The massive fire has engulfed the Grenfell Tower in North Kensington from the 2nd story to the top floor, the London Fire Brigade has tweeted. It added that at least 40 fire engines and 200 firefighters have been battling the blaze.

Horrific. That's got to be one of the worst ways to go.

Local officials believe that several hundred people were in the building at the time. The high-rise had a "stay put" policy in the event of a fire — with residents urged to shut their windows and doors and await rescue.

sad2.gif That stay put policy wasn't such a great idea. These high rise buildings need some type of outside ladder escape.

To Building Built entirely of Flame retardant materials , such as Metal Studs , Double layer 2 hour Drywall ,
Steel Beams , Concrete Floors on Steel Pans ,,,

Not like this Old Turd Building built of Wood Studs , Wood Floors , wood Trusses , wooden stairwells ,


Um ,,, ?
Tell me again , did I build High Rises ?

oh yeah , that's right , I did indeed ,,, many the Core , where I installed the Fire Proofing .

gee ,,,

More than 600 residents desperately tried to escape the flames as the fire broke out in the middle of the night.

Survivors claimed there was no working fire alarm, sprinklers failed and the only staircase out was blocked.

Dozens are missing in the wake of the fire, with residents saying that 'nobody on the top three floors have survived'.

Twenty people are fighting for their lives in a critical condition with 78 people taken to six different hospitals across London.
