Whirlpool Refrigerator Blamed for London's Deadly Grenfell Tower Fire

24 June 2017

To help the recovery effort, police will install an elevator on Grenfell Tower's exterior next week, McCormack said.

The Chalcots estate has five tower blocks - four 22 storey blocks and one 18 storey block.

She added: "Together we decided that the Taplow block needs to be temporarily decanted while we undertake urgent fire safety works so that residents can be fully assured of their safety".

"We offer our most profound condolences to the victims, those who have lost loved-ones, homes, and possessions, and to their friends and families", Whirlpool said in a statement.

Another firefighter wrote "Our hearts go out to everyone touched by this tragedy".

The website reported that Trump will sometimes interrupt conversations with associates to say, "I'm not under investigation". Trump hadn't publicly admitted he was personally under investigation until now.

"We are looking at every criminal offense from manslaughter onwards", Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack told reporters. "We did our best I promise".

Refurbishment on the Chalcots estate in Camden was overseen by Rydon, the company involved in the refit of Grenfell Tower, according to the Rydon website.

One shirt bearing the London Ambulance Service logo said: "We refuse to forget you".

The company said 64,000 such fridge freezers were made by Indesit between 2006 and 2009 when the model was discontinued, some years before Whirlpool acquired Indesit.

London Police say manslaughter charges are among moves being considered over the Grenfell Tower fire that killed at least 79 people. Britain also ordered an immediate technical examination of the Hotpoint fridge model FF175BP, which had not been subject to any recall to establish whether further action should be taken, but said there was no need for owners to switch off their appliances.

Authorities may never be able to identify some of the victims, he said. The blaze killed at least 79 people and displaced many more.

The UK's Department for Communities and Local Government has written to all local authority and housing association chief executives to advise them on steps to take if tower blocks in their area are found to be covered in cladding they are concerned about. The call comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan's pledge to seek an amnesty for people who may have been living in the tower illegally.

"It's obviously a tragedy and scandal in west London at the Grenfell Tower but it's now emerging as a picture of a national scandal". Along with Manchester, only Camden and Plymouth have been identified among this list.

The cheap cladding was blamed for the fire spreading from one fourth floor flat and engulfing the entire building in the early hours of June 14.

Tests on the building's material as part of the police investigation were "small scale", the officer said, but added: "All I can say at the moment is they (tiles and insulation) don't pass any safety tests". Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material used on some of its buildings, though it is different from the type used at Grenfell Tower.
