The number of victims has increased to 30 in the fire that engulfed a highrise building earlier this week, London police said Friday.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said that 24 people are being treated in the hospital, including 12 in critical care. The number of victims is expected to grow.

Authorities say they’ve examined original location of fire and there is no indication it was started deliberately.
