Multiple people were killed after flames devoured a high-rise apartment building in west London early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Grenfell Tower, which is 24 stories tall, was quickly consumed even as firefighters tried to battle the flames. London fire commissioner Dany Cotton confirmed that there were multiple fatalities. London Ambulance Service said that at least 50 people were taken to area hospitals.

“This is an unprecedented incident,” she said. “In my 29 years of being a firefighter I have never ever seen anything of this scale.”

Cotton said the cause of the fire is not yet known.
