Massive fire engulfs London high-rise, leaving 'a number of fatalities'
By KARMA ALLEN DAVID CAPLAN JOSHUA HOYOS Jun 14, 2017, 4:29 AM ET


A massive fire engulfed a residential high-rise building in London on Wednesday, leaving scores injured and an undetermined amount of people dead.

The London Fire Brigade dispatched at least 40 fire engines, 20 ambulance crews and 200 firefighters in an effort to battle the conflagration at the 24-story Grenfell Tower in West London.

A representative for the London Fire Brigade said there had been "a number of fatalities," but declined to say how many people had died.

"This is an unprecedented incident," London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton told reporters. "In my 29 years of being a firefighter, I have never ever seen anything of this scale."
