A massive fire ripped through a 27-storey apartment block in west London before dawn on Wednesday, killing several people and injuring dozens more after residents were left trapped inside.

At 7:30am London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton confirmed that there have been fatalities in the blaze. "(When I called) all she said is, 'It's hot, it's hot, it's hot", she told CNN.
"Then I looked out the window and just saw the tower which is at the end of our road - the whole of one side was just completely in flames, like 24, 25 storeys just up in flames and I have never seen anything that extensive before".
