London: The death toll in the massive fire that engulfed a 24-storey tower here nearly doubled to 30 on Friday amid fears that it could climb to “triple figures”, even as Scotland Yard launched a criminal investigation into the cause of one of the worst fire tragedies in the country.

“At this stage the Met can confirm that, following initial reports from specialist investigators and experts, there is nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately,” Metropolitan police chief Stuart Cundy said. “Sadly, it is expected that the total will rise and it is not expected that any survivors will be found,” he said.
