London tower fire: Twitter captures aftermath of ‘unprecedented’ blaze (VIDEOS, PHOTOS)
The fire, which started in the early hours of Wednesday, has now largely been extinguished.
As events continued into the day Wednesday, Twitter users captured images of the charred husk of the high-rise building smoking among the townhouses in the leafy neighborhood of North Kensington.
The blaze was described as “unprecedented” by London fire commissioner Dany Cotton.
One user’s video shows plumes of black smoke drifting off the building, while dramatic images also emerged of firefighters battling the blaze.
Some residents donned face masks to keep from breathing the hazardous ash in the area.
Meanwhile, donations continue to pour in for those left homeless by the blaze.
