Up to 600 people are believed to have been inside Grenfell Tower's 120 flats when the blaze tore through the 24-storey building early Wednesday. At least 60 injured people have been taken to hospital, but many are still missing after residents were left trapped on upper floors as flames rapidly ripped up the block. London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said police expect the death toll to rise. More than 200 firefighters and 50 vehicles were called to stamp out the fire.

The Vietnam Embassy in the UK said there has been no information that Vietnamese citizens are among the victims of the fire. The Embassy continues to closely follow the incident and is ready to take prompt measures to protect Vietnamese citizens in need.
