Do they make quick deploying parachute gliders? If so, they're a must-have for high-rise residents.
The building services engineering firm Max Fordham was also commissioned as a specialist consultant, according to the report. Planning documents published in 2012 show the company suggested temporarily removing “fire stopping” between floors of the building so as to install new heating pipework. It is unclear whether this happened and the company did not return requests for comment, while its website does not mention Grenfell.
Are you serious? Insurance doesn't bring people back to life, you are such a material minded american typical.

The thread title had me worried someone had actually set fire to "London Tower"! Not just some tower in the city of London.
Sucks for anyone who died. If my house burned down I'd lose all the data on my computer hard drive. Insurance would probably take care of the rest. And possibly provide a temporary place to live? But I don't know that for sure.
Thank goodness we live in a time of insurance!

started by a fridge that blew up maybe terrorist trying to make bombs and it went off early. This is there own fault for coming to the wrong country. They need to go to place like turkey that can accept them, turkey backwards enough they fit in there.

That's not very Christian of you.
As it happens, there is one particular brand of fridge sold in the UK which is infamous for exploding - and not as in 'door flies off with a "pop" sound' but as in 'turns into a fireball and takes out anything nearby'. I'm not going to name the brand, for legal reasons, but it's not hard to google 'refrigerator explosions, uk' if you're curious.
Quite apart from anything else, the fire service investigation at Grenfell Tower will identify the 'seat' of the fire (this is pretty much an exact science, and has been for decades), and they will confirm or refute the people who reported a small fire resulting from a fridge explosion.
I personally think that this was a delibrate arson to force May's [read:Queen] resignation.
Other than that you are correct .
500 dead is hard to forget, if true.
