Officials in London say there have been "a number of fatalities" in a massive apartment fire. The BBC quotes a fire chief saying the Grenfell Tower fire has claimed a number of lives, but the cause of those deaths is not yet known.
At least fifty people have been hospitalized because of the fire, and officials fear that some victims are unaccounted for. Firefighters are still battling the blaze that has engulfed the entire 24-story building in north Kensington.
There are fears that the building might collapse.
The burning tower has 120 apartments in it.
Eyewitnesses have reported seeing people trapped inside their homes. London Mayor Sadiq Khan has declared the fire a "major incident."
