On June 14, just after midnight, a fire began on the fourth floor of Grenfell Tower located in north Kensington, a district of west London.
The ambulance service said 50 people had been hospitalised. Eyewitness spoke of trapped parents throwing their children from windows in desperate efforts to save them.
Pictures showed flames engulfing the block and a plume of smoke visible across the capital, while others showed desperate residents looking out of windows in the block.
Michael Paramaseevan, who lives on the seventh floor of the Grenfell Tower apartment building with his partner and young daughter, told the BBC he ignored official safety advice to stay in his apartment in the event of a fire. "I guess the New Zealand risk profile is a little bit different - we don't have as many tall buildings".
Police Commander Stuart Cundy said a "recovery operation" could take some time and there could be people in the building who are unaccounted for.
Other residents told harrowing tales of their own escapes and frustration at not being able to help neighbors. While the death of six people has been officially confirmed, it is expected that there will be more victims.
On their JustGiving page it says it will use the money to help those who survived the fire and "will be setting up in new homes in the coming weeks, having lost all their possessions".
As fire-fighters fought the blaze, witnesses said a baby was caught by members of the public after being dropped from the window of the 9th floor.
The London Fire Brigade said it received the first reports of the blaze at 12:54 a.m. and the first engines arrived within six minutes. In my 29 years in the London Fire Brigade I have never seen a fire of this nature.
London Fire Brigade said it had rescued 65 people as flames engulfed the block, and had managed to reach all 24 floors, though a full search of the building has not been completed.
"Regular readers of this blog will know that we have posted numerous warnings in recent years about the very poor fire safety standards at Grenfell Tower and elsewhere in (the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea)".
Meanwhile, work is continuing to tackle "pockets of fire" in the block, with several residents reporting one man had said it started in his faulty fridge.
The anger was particularly strong since activists had warned just seven months ago that fire safety procedures were so lax that only a catastrophic blaze would bring the scrutiny needed to make the building safe.
The Action Group expressed concern about the testing and maintenance of firefighting equipment and blocked emergency access to the site. It was noted that the tower was recently renovated, with the price tag for those renovations being £8.7 million.
