Major blaze at housing block in south-west London


I agree. For the whole building to go up in flames suggest something has gone drastically wrong with the measures that restrict the spread of a fire, be it in the way a specification was changed or materials not being installed properly for whatever reason or even due to ill-advised alterations soon after completion. If no one has been injured or worse then this must be regarded as the closest call possible for the industry. Let us hope it does not take years to find out what went wrong and that news is not silenced by legal proceedings.
