Fire precautions Avoiding a high rise blaze in Switzerland

Embed code

A residential high-rise from the 70s which was only recently renovated was the scene of the devastating fire in London. Switzerland is now looking more closely at its own fire prevention measures, and how it would deal with a major blaze of this kind. (SRF/swissinfo.ch) 

At least 79 people are dead or missing and presumed dead following the blaze that tore through the 24-story tower block in north Kensington. 

The inquiry into the fire will focus on how the building was constructed, the recent refurbishment of it, how it is managed and maintained and fire safety measures.
