London Public Housing Building Becomes Towering Inferno

Grenfell Tower, a 27-storey apartment building run by a London municipality, looks like a scene from a disaster movie, with an electrical fire having quickly spread to engulf the whole building. With many people trapped inside, some even jumped from the tall building to escape the flames.

Here, children trapped in the burning building are heard screaming for help:

The building's tenants assocation had long complained of safety violations and poor maintenance, including power surges from faulty wiring which had previously caused electrical fires.
