I realized it was a guy calling "fire" and then I could see the smoke coming out of the building.
"I evacuated with my girlfriend.
I knocked on the neighbor's door because the fire didn't ring.
None of my neighbors opened the door, so I ran down the stairs and when we got to the 13 th floor where the fire happened --
The door to the stairs is actually open.
"We got outside and the police and the fire brigade were there and took us to the evacuation point.
"I know there's some guidance on staying --
Put the policy, in this case it works because the fire is locked in an apartment and the fire brigade has enough time to go in and put out the fire, but we never know what to do in a fire.
He said: "We feel relatively calm now, because no one is injured and there is not much loss, so all the residents are calm --"
I mean, given the news about Grenfell this morning, we really appreciate it.
I think that's in our minds.

It's in your neighborhood, coming out of the building.
When we went downstairs, we began to run down the stairs and beat the door.

The London Fire Brigade said about 180 people left the building before the staff arrived, and a sprinkler system suppressed the flames.

High-rise homes are often not equipped with public fire alarms, as it is often safer to stay in your own apartment unless heat or smoke affects you.
"If you leave your apartment, you may rush into dangerous smoke, the fire itself or the firefighters use the equipment to control the fire in another part of the building.
"The fire was considered accidental because of the careless handling of the smoking material.
