The images of the blackened, scorched innards of the building show debris-strewn rooms that were formerly occupied by working-class residents of London.

Authorities said Saturday that 30 people were confirmed to have died and that 28 others were missing and presumed dead. But Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy warned that the numbers may rise.
