Theresa May calls for probe of fatal high-rise blaze


Firefighters extinguished the last of the flames in the devastating west London blaze as they searched for more victims Thursday, a day after the high-rise apartment building fire that killed at least 12 people. Fire swept through a high-rise apartment building in west London early W. Fire experts say the investigators will need to look at what materials were used in the project and who approved their use.

Queen Elizabeth said her thoughts and prayers were with those families who had lost loved ones and with the many people still critically ill in hospital.

While the death toll is still rising, authorities confirmed yesterday that 17 people had been confirmed dead in the inferno while saying that "sadly the number will increase" as they no longer expected to find anyone alive in the unstable, burned-out high rise. People desperately sought news of their missing family and friends. There is still no exact count of the missing.

Thirty-seven people are still receiving treatment in hospitals across London, with 17 still in a critical condition. None of the 17 fatalities has been identified so far.

As the building continued to burn after noon Wednesday, questions emerged on why the fire spread through the building so quickly in a city where a centuries-old history of disastrous fires has forced one of the world's most stringent fire codes.

"A lot of people managed to get outside themselves and 65 were rescued", he said.

"The windows were slightly ajar, a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby". Others tossed small children.

"Our specialist urban search and rescue (USAR) crews are now working to make the block safe so our firefighters can continue to progress throughout the building, making a detailed, fingertip search, for anyone who may still be inside". "This is a major fire that's affected all floors of the 24-story structure from the second floor upwards".

Firefighters combed the sooty ruins of the 120-apartment tower on Thursday in a desperate search for scores of missing residents, however some parts of the building were too structurally unsafe to enter.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said: "There will be an investigation but at this stage I do not want to speculate about the cause of the fire or what has caused it to spread in the way that it did".

Waewta said she was watching television at around 1am when she heard about the fire.

He has not been seen since and can not be found at any hospital.

"It's great that you're in place", he told them.
