I was surprised watching the footage on Twitter video they didn't use water helicopters to pour water from the top.

Maybe Trevor TNT ex-fireman could give his insight ...
this was mention
the reason they didnt use helicopters was because of thefan the blades cause

I see thx christella ....Just I have seen them used on forest fires, but what you say makes sense. Just thinking of the horror and them jumping.

Re: fire west london

You cant just drop a ton of water that alone would kill people, I would imagine no problem in fields & woodlands but not in places occupied by people.

My thoughts are also with the many pets that had to be left behind.

The stuff of nightmares - all quite unthinkable

Re: fire west london

it shows that the idea of people staying in their flats protected by fire doors "until they are rescued" is not the save-all that people think ... if people can't get in to rescue them and the building itself collapses, those inside have no chance.... apparently fire engines were just standing idly by ...

Not much those fire engines can do Eliza – most fire snorkels can only reach up 75 feet and cherry pickers not much more.

Come on TNT, where’s your comment on all this?

Re: fire west london

Apparently children were being thrown down from windows ... so the fire brigade could have tried to catch them, apparently some were caught by members of the public ... but no, health and safety would not allow that! Could they not have entered the building and tried to put out the fire floor by floor? Apparently they are supposed to work from the inside .... or once the fire had taken hold, possibly their safety was placed above any possible rescue of a member of the public ...
