Fire in London High-Rise

At 1:15 am, on June 14, a high-rise apartment building in London caught fire. Witnesses reported people being trapped in their apartments yelling for help. Over 200 firefighters were sent to put out the fire. The firefighters rescued people at the 27-storey building. But sadly, many people could not be saved.

Firefighters tried to control the fire on the higher floors but it burned out of control. Officials think there could have been up to 600 people in the building. People living in nearby buildings were evacuated. The reason for the fire was not known but many who escaped said the fire alarm had not been set off by the fire.

Tragically, more than 50 people have died and the death toll is expected to rise. Over 70 people were taken to six hospitals across London. A crowdfunding website has been set up to help the victims at JustGiving.com.
