Seventy-two people were killed when the fire tore through the housing block in Kensington, west London , on June 14 last year. One of a series of expert reports into the disaster today showed images of flat 16, where the fire started around a fridge freezer. But the report stopped short of saying a fault with the device was the cause of the blaze, stating only that the 'origin of the fire was in, or around, the tall fridge freezer'. The report states the flat's resident, Behailu Kebede, referred to the fridge in his first call to emergency services. He said: 'Fire in flat 16, Grenfell Tower... the fridge, flat 16, Grenfell Tower.' Five reports have been made available this morning, with others examining the effectiveness of the fire protection measures within the building.
