Six killed in London tower block fire

By Duncan Mil

June 14, 2017 - At least six people are confirmed dead, and more than 74 people are being treated in hospitals -- with 20 in a critical condition -- after a massive fire raged through the night at a west London tower block.

Firefighters are still trying to put the fire out in the 24-storey block 12 hours on. Police say there are still people in the building who are unaccounted for.

Commander Stuart Cundy, of the Metropolitan Police, said the recovery operation would be “complex and lengthy”, and the number of fatalities was expected to rise.
