Fairly modern block of flats. Fire seems to have spread quickly. Luckily no fatalities reported so far.

Worryingly, it looks very similar to the place I live in.

without knowing too much about the time frame or details etc of that fire - buildings burn, its incredibly hard to stop it, what they have to be designed to do is burn in a way that provides people with means of escape, usually within 30 minutes sometimes 60, that's done through compartmentalisation which is a wide range of things, and then access routes of maximum distances, number of escapes etc 

if that photo is 90 minutes after the fire started then the design has done everything it can

the shittest thing about grenfall from what I can remember is they told people to wait inside (even the external cladding burning in the way it did wouldn't have impacted the escape routes) that's never what buildings are designed to do, you cant have a fire proof block of flats
