Lakanal House: new evidence reveals how fatal fire spread


I am always saddened and frustrated to learn of tragedies such as this, as there are a great variety of fire escape systems available (including systems which will save those even above the crucial seventh floor). The use of these, however, is hampered by rules, regulations, and the belief that a single internal staircase can always be used in the event of a serious fire.
