Rescuers in London are working to get residents out of a 27-story apartment tower that has been engulfed in a massive fire for several hours. Officials fear some residents are still trapped in the blaze. A number of people, including children, are missing.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has declared it a “major incident.”

London Metropolitan police officials say at least 200 firefighters are battling the fire, as they worked to evacuate residents from the building in West London’s North Kensington area.

Rescue teams are treating people for smoke inhalation and other injuries.

Witnesses told a local TV station they could hear residents screaming for help, while some of those trapped shined their cell phone lights in the hope of being spotted by rescuers.

Those who escaped stood outside the building in their pajamas as police cordoned off the area and called on people to stay off the streets to allow emergency vehicles through.

The fire was first reported just after 1 a.m. London time. Investigators say they do not yet know the cause of the fire.

伦敦一座27层公寓大楼起火,救援人员正在努力疏散住户。大火已经烧了好几个小时,有关官员担心,有人仍被困在大火里。有些人目前下落不明,其中包括儿童。

伦敦市长萨迪克·汗宣布,这次大火是一起“重大事件”。

伦敦警方说,着火的公寓大楼位于伦敦西部的北肯辛顿地区,至少有200名消防队员正在救火,疏散住户。

救护人员正在帮助吸住烟雾的人和其他受伤者。

目击者告诉一家当地电视台说,他们可以听到住户呼喊救命,被困在大楼里的人用手机上的手电晃动,希望能被救援人员发现。

逃出来的人穿着睡衣站到大楼外面。警察把附近地区封锁,让大家不要站在街道上,方便急救车辆通过。

有关部门是在伦敦当地时间凌晨一点刚过时接到火灾报警的。调查人员说,他们目前还不清楚起火的原因。
