No London Tower Block Fire

A 27-storey block of flats in London has caught fire. 'Several dead'. At least fifty people in hospital. People jumping from flats. People saying 'it's like a horror film'. One report said a man caught a baby thrown from the block. One person had to step over a dead body as she escaped. Many harrowing stories. It just sounds dreadful. At least 40 fire engines at the scene. Lifts not working and there was only one fire escape - and that was on fire, said one resident. It was like 9/11 said another. The fire alarms did not work, said someone else. 'It went up like a Christmas tree', said yet another. Stories of horror and heroism emerging.
