The death toll, as sadly expected, has now risen to 17, and could go higher, from Thursday's tragic fire over London at a high rise apartment tower.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a full public inquiry into the fire that raged at Grenfell Tower, a 24-story, 20-floor residential high rise in west London, north Kensington. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn visited the site of the tragedy and spoke with firefighters and community organizers, the BBC-News reported. London-born pop queen, Adele, also visited the scene of the tragedy and comforted victims.
That a tragedy of such magnitude could occur and spread so quickly throughout a residential building, is sure to provide an education to investigators and to safety authorities and give new lessons toward modern fire safety requirements and regulations.
