Answered By: 
The Mayor

The premises involved in this incident was a purpose built block of flats and not a conversion. While London Fire Brigade is still awaiting the outcomes of the Performance Review of Operations and Command for this incident, early indications are that the evacuation of this premises was carried out in accordance with the plan for that building.
