London fire: Public question efficiency of UK firefighters

June 16, 2017 12:40 pm

The official death toll from the London fire has risen to 17, with the city’s fire chief saying rescuers are not expecting to find any more survivors. The deadly fire has raised questions about the efficiency of the rescue efforts by the UK fire fighting department. Local media say that fire-fighters arrived at the burning Grenfell Tower two or three hours after they received the call. But the London Fire Department says the first responders took only six minutes to arrive. The questions on social media about the slow response may have come from some witnesses’ descriptions. Some survivors complained that the firefighters asked them to stay in the burning building and await rescue.
