Oh Shit! Blaze engulfs apartment block in West London

“Screaming residents build ropes from sheets and lean out windows as huge fire at West London tower block spreads to ‘at least five’ floors with 200 firefighters struggling to control the blaze”
Daily Mail – June 13, 2017

A huge fire has engulfed a 27-story apartment block in West London. 
Around 200 firefighters and 40 fire trucks have been deployed to tackle the blaze, as rescue workers try to evacuate the building in Lancaster West Estate in North Kensington, London Fire Brigade said. 
The fire broke out before daybreak local time Wednesday, when most of the building's residents would have still been in bed. 
In a statement posted to Twitter, London police say two people are currently being treated for smoke inhalation and they're waiting updates on further injuries. 
"The whole building is on fire (and) spreading fast," witness Goran Karimi told CNN. He said he saw people jumping from the building. 
The London Fire Brigade said the cause of the fire is still unknown. In a statement posted on Facebook, the service said the "fire is from the second floor to the top floor of the 27 floor building."

Watch for the bullshit. They say it started on the 26th floor. Fires don't burn down...

Did somebody try to roast a goat on one of the balconies?

PS: Don't forget it's Ramadan. From sunset to sunrise, Muslims gorge on food.

I'm watching NBC News. Many Muslims were evacuated from the building.

Another detail: apparently, no fire alarm in the building was triggered.

One witness is saying that his refrigerator caught fire.

I'm watching what appears to be an Englishman with an Islamic name. This man was a resident who escaped the apartment building and is being interviewed by NBC News.

What does that mean, his refrigerator caught fire? Was that the cause of the fire, or is he saying, the fire was so bad even my refrigerator caught fire?
