Questions are growing about how the Grenfell Tower fire spread so quickly, focused on the cladding fitted to external walls as part of an £8.7-million ($11-million) refit completed past year. Grief has since given way to anger as protests were held in London yesterday by residents demanding more support for those affected by the fire.

The fire forced residents to flee through black smoke down the single stairwell, jump out of windows or even drop their children from the 120-apartment building.

The death toll was revised up on Friday from 17 to 30, but police warned they expect it to increase further, with as many as 70 people thought to still be missing.

The London Fire Brigade has yet to say what the cause of the fire was.

In addition to those killed, the blaze injured at least 74 people.

The council has also accused of negligence by using a cheaper and more combustive cladding on the building during its refurbishment in 2015.

The deadly blaze has turned into a political crisis, testing the fragile government of Prime Minister Theresa May.

The move comes after Khan wrote an open letter to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, who chairs the task-force, saying people were frustrated by the lack of information about the victims, as well as a lack of coordination between support services.

"Everything possible will be done to help them", the prime minister said of the victims in a statement.

May announced on Friday that her government has set up a £5 million ($8.4 million Cdn) "discretionary fund" to help pay for food, clothing, personal supplies and funerals. The toll had previously been put at 30.

The prime minister's response, characterized as stilted and lacking empathy, and her failure to meet with fire victims during an initial visit to the site amplified complaints on her leadership.
