    According to NBC News, more than 250 firefighters battled the inferno that could ultimately burn for days.

    One local resident remembered seeing "people dangling children out the windows to try and get them to safety" as flames began to spread throughout the high-rise apartment block.

    "In my 29 years of being a firefighter, I have never, ever seen anything of this scale," London Fire Brigade Commissioner Dany Cotton told NBC News. "This is a major fire that's affected all floors of the 24-story structure from the second floor upwards."

    Authorities said the cause of the blaze remained unclear and is under investigation.
