Over 800 London Apartments Evacuated For Safety Concerns After Grenfell Fire
More than 800 tower apartments in Camden, north London are being evacuated over safety concerns stemming from the Grenfell Tower fire that killed approximately 79 people, BBC News reported. External cladding on the evacuated buildings is similar to that on Grenfell Tower, which many officials think helped the fire spread quickly. The five tower blocks are expected to be evacuated for the next three to four weeks. During that time the Camden Council said it will remove cladding and carry out fire safety checks.
