After firefighters battled the blaze at Grenfell Tower in London early on Wednesday, they turned to a drone for help surveying the damage.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service, a department about an hour southeast of London, supplied its drone to the London Fire Brigade, the Kent department said in a statement. As of Friday at noon local time, at least 30 people had died in the fire in the 24-floor tower, and the number will likely rise, according to London’s Metropolitan Police. Authorities said they had found no evidence to suggest that someone intentionally started the fire.
A spokesman for the London Fire Brigade tells Newsweek that responders are using the drone “to help monitor the building.”
