How Small Things Stack Up To A Tragedy. And What You Can Do About It.

It started in a 4th floor flat. A broken refrigerator caught fire in the early hours of June 14th, 2017. As the fire grabbed hold, it grew and spread rapidly. Very soon, the fire in Grenfell tower had lit up the London skyline. 72 people lost their lives that night with 70 injured and everyone in the building people rendered homeless. It was the worst residential fire since the Second World War.

The only thing that I wanted to understand was that how is it possible for a small fire to turn into such a disaster?
