Yeah, there are reports of fire alarms not going off inside flats, so I can see this being very bad.

Sadly, it seems the resident assoc. raised this very issue with Kensington & Chelsea council, going back to 2013. Nothing was done.

With regard to escapes and sprinklers and whatnot, interesting comment from fire engineer on reddit:

Do we know who the landlord is / who did the renovation? As they are both likely on the hook for this.

People are drawing similarities to a fire on a Melbourne docks tower block. Caused by the newly fitting cladding catching fire.

People will be moving out of those other towers in droves.

This is what happens when you take a shithole 1960's tower block, and try to tart the fucker up.


<edit> correction, 1974, but it would still have been a concrete shithole. I lived near enough of the cunts in Sheffield. Councils attempting to polish turds.

Ok, here's a theory that's just occurred to me:

https://grenfellactiongroup.wordpres...ling-the-heat/

Based on all the shit slinging that appears to have been going on for so long with the residents on this particular block, do you think it's possible that one of them could have started what they thought would be a small harmless fire, in order to highlight the perceived issues, and which might have got out of hand?

Possible or chemtrail?

If 6 is the final total after that fire, that'll be a fucking miracle, and probably the best news for the whole of 2017.

A resident has owned up and said the fire started when his fridge freezer exploded (I'm not precisely sure how a fridge freezer explodes?).

Anyway, a fire in a flat (started deliberately or otherwise) shouldn't total an entire tower block.

People quoted by BBC describing it as being "like a horror movie"

I don't mean to be critical, but "disaster movie", surely.

Isn't there a recall on a whole bunch of appliances by a certain manufacturer that has been massively delayed, leading to people continuing to use them?

<edit> BEKO I think. I seem to recall checking the batch/model numbers on the mother in law's fridge/freezer.

reading the wordpress site above there's plenty reports of power surges causing problems to electrical items.

Some (older) fridges will have used propane and butane as coolants. Both highly flammable and if there is a leak all it takes is a spark.

A few mins ago, someone being interviewed on BBC said his neighbour (on 4th floor) had told him his fridge exploded (though it wasn't clear if this was due to heat/flames in his kitchen or maybe even the source of the fire).
