Believers Rush to London Fire Blaze to Minister, Establish Prayer Stations

A fire broke out at Grenfell Tower in North Kensington this morning. Chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, Wilson Chowdhry traveled to the blaze to offer help and bottles of water to victims. After the two crates of water he had ran out, some local residents invited him to watch the blaze with them on their balcony. It was a very eerie experience.

Locals heard screams and shouts for help and some even reported people jumping from windows. Though police have not yet reported any fatalities one police officer could be heard shouting to photographers to “have some respect some of these people here have lost family members.”

Churches and community centers are providing temporary shelter, food and drink but hundreds of people are disheveled and in trauma. There are 120 flats in the 26-story building and around 500 people may have been inside before the fire. At one location, police were guiding the newly homeless people to Rugby Portobello, a center where food and shelter were available.

The fire has been raging for many hours, and shreds of the outer plastic decor fell to the floor throughout the blaze. The London Fire service have reported that the first call was made to the fire service at around 1.05 a.m. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has labelled the fire a major incident.

London ambulance services have confirmed that 50 people have been taken to five local hospitals. They have also now declared that a number of fatalities occurred, though specific numbers have yet to be clarified.
