Grenfell tower fire – There won’t be any stone left unturned

Notting Hill Grenfell tower fire

Grenfell tower fire – during the night on 14-15 June 2017 the 24 storey building had gone in fire. Unfortunately, I’ve seen that building in flames….It’s impossible to imagine how can you feel in such circumstances.

The reason most likely was caused by the ignition which fired the polystyrene cladding. The cladding type was flammable and was just slightly cheaper – ca £2 per 1 square meter than not flammable version. According to the London Police along with Kensington & Chelsea borough, there’s still a hope that number of those whose died won’t be 3 digit number. 

Below you can see how LFB (London Fire Brigade) worked to cope with that situation. Despite overall sad mood around this case, firefighters tried to not be sad or depressed.  Local authorities have said they’ll will do their best to be sure that “There won’t be any stone left unturned” in terms of finding missing people whose left in the building.
