Major blaze at housing block in south-west London


The Regulations and the detail design should have prevented this fire spreading to burn down the whole building. We need urgent action to stem the number of fires which could have easily been prevented, and which put fire-fighters lives at risk. There were a number of fires leading up to Grenfell, and then the two fires at the 'Mac'. I know architects get little chance these days to influence materials and detailing, but the profession should stand up and campaign loudly against the diminution of standards of fire prevention. C'mon RIBA !
