London High-Rise Fire

There are at least six deaths and 74 people injured after a massive fire at a 24-story high-rise apartment building in West London.

Witnesses said there were people up in the windows of Grenfell Tower screaming for help, some jumping and throwing their children out of the windows.

The fire raced through the apartment building early this morning, drawing more than 45 trucks and 200 firefighters to the scene.

Local officials said several hundred people were in the 130-unit building and the high-rise had a “stay-put” policy in the event of a fire.
 
The fire is still under investigation.
