Fortunately, all safely evacuated.
Anybody done any work in these flats?
Or got any juicy gossip?

All evacuated safely, so one assumption columns be a working fire alarm system.

Ok, I’ll start - it looks like a fire on the first floor either on the balcony or inside (and failed to be contained in the flat). It then spread up all the balconies, which although look like they are steel, probably had timber or resin boarding etc. The external fire was clearly intense and penetrated all the flats. Just my thoughts, not for use in court :) .

It's not about the fact someone was daft enough to light a barbeque (allegedly) it's the fact, yet again the fire spread;

The fire appeared to rip through the wooden cladding around the balconies of the building and may have been caused by a barbecue being lit on one of the balconies,

What is the difference between a 7.99 meter building and a 8.01 meter building?

Just a guess, Over 8mtrs is a Tower block?
Or over 8 is when U.K Gov are going to be paying towards cladding repairs. (not that this block would benefit)
