At least 6 dead after massive fire engulfs 24-story apartment tower in London

Hundreds of firefighters were battling a massive blaze that engulfed a 27-story apartment building in west London early Wednesday.

The fire at the Grenfell Tower in North Kensington broke out in the early morning hours, and at least 200 firefighters and 40 fire engines were on the scene.

Authorities fear some residents may still be trapped in the inferno. The London Metropolitan Police said residents were being evacuated and there were “a number of people being treated for a range of injuries.”

Flames were seen up the entire height of the tower. Authorities were keeping evacuees and bystanders away from the building out of fear it could collapse.
