Must Read

London Fire Brigade Station Commander David Bracewell, who is at the scene said: “Firefighters are dealt with a fire on the 12th floor of a tower block in W11. Three people from the affected flat left before the Brigade arrived. A number of other residents evacuated the building.

“Firefighters led six residents to safety via an internal staircase. Further residents who were not affected by fire, heat or smoke were advised to remain in their flats.

“In the early stages we used new technology called 9Eye that enabled a caller to send live stream videos of the incident straight into the Brigade’s 999 call centre.

“We’ve also used a 32m turntable ladder to put water on the outside of the building.”

The high-rise block is located just a couple of hundred yards away from Grenfell Tower, with smoke visible over the area.

Latest video from the scene shows a badly charred and blackened window on the 12th floor, with soot and ask coating windows around the affected flat.
