Residents ‘fearful’ Notting Hill fire could have been a repeat of Grenfell Tower
A fire at a block of flats close to Grenfell Tower had residents fearing a blaze similar to the one that killed 72 people in June 2017. Around 70 firefighters and 10 engines were sent to a 12th-floor balcony at Markland House in Darfield Way, Notting Hill, west London, on Friday morning. London Fire Brigade (LFB) said crews are speaking to residents in the building, which is a short walk away from Grenfell Tower, to reassure them. Firefighters were called at 11.39am about “smoke issuing” from a building, with 999 control officers taking 27 calls to the incident. Scotland Yard said there were no reports of any injuries, while LFB said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
