A fire erupted in a central London building on Wednesday morning, prompting at least 200 firefighters and 40 engines to arrive at the scene near Notting Hill in the west of the British capital, local media reported Wednesday.

According to initial reports, the Grenfell Tower was not set ablaze purposely and the fire is most likely a big incident. However, there is still fear that residents of the building might be trapped inside, although authorities have told them to evacuate the premises and accompanied them to a nearby church a short while ago.

More details to follow.
