wednesday june 14th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good morning to you. the breaking news first of all in london. the massive fire at an apartment building home to hundreds of people. >> it has burned throughout the night. flames engulfed almost the entire building. witnesses said they saw and heard people screaming from inside. as well. london fire officials say 45 engines and hundreds of firefighters are at the scene. attempts to reach anyone who at home as the fire spread continued for hours. >> those pictures at the height of the fire. and this is a live picture this early morning hour right now. the sun is up there in london. as you can see the flames are still there. and the smoke is still smoldering from the fire. it can be seen for miles around. people who watched fire burn, say the building was completely engulfed within an hour of the time it started. >> when we first seen it was only a few floors.
3:32 am
then it just spread up all the building. and then on to like the adjacent side of it. just spread all across. >> down there about, five-minute walk away. and we could hear people screaming, help me. help me. and, flashing their phone lights to let people know they were there. >> unbelievable scene there. abc's molly hunter is live in west london for us. molly, we keep looking at these images just as it looks like they're getting this fire under control we see new pockets of flames coming out. what's the lateest? >> reporter: that is exactly right. diane. i am standing literally on a balcony. probably at the level of maybe like the 10th floor of the building. couple block as way. and it is incredibly, close, water spout in front of me as you can see on live pictures. exactly right the minute that we think one of the sides has gone completely black smoke and into charred, no more flames, something pops up on the other
3:33 am
side. you can see just hundreds of firemen on the ground, still just trying to get this out. we are six hours later, diane, kendis, starting to see daylight through this building, the building is starting to lean. police of course for the last couple hours, warned every resident to get back because this building could collapse. police and fire have not given us updated numbers, people trapped, people died, people at hospitals. we know at least 30 people at local hospitals. you guys if anyone was trapped in the upper floors it is nearly impossible to imagine them actually getting out. >> molly, of course seeing on twitter. there are many people looking for their loved ones. what sort of stories are you getting? i know you are still a few block as way. imagine there are many people in
3:34 am
the area who potentially are looking for their loved ones. >> that is exactly right. speaking with eyewitnesses, neighborhood residents. in the area. many of them obviously new people, had family, or, friends in that building. and they describe chaos in immediate hour after the fire. running around. screams. and, screaming for fire department officials to get in there to rescue their family. we heard from one man named kennedy, he described a family of four on the 20th floor, who are waving flash lights, screaming for help. and he said he could watch as the flames actually engulfed the building, crept up the building and eventually that family case peered. that's exactly right. a lot of very, very confused people waiting to hear whether their loved ones were taken to hospitals. or, of course, the worst. >> molly, any sense of how long it will take them before they can finally enter the building to try to look for any one inside. >> i don't thing there is any
3:35 am
sense. because we seat flames burning, of course, fire department officials are still staying back. that water is coming from about a block away. definitely no one has entered the building. again as i said. police are very, very worried that actually that building will now collapse. which of course would make entering it incredibly unsafe, diane. >> make sure you stay safe it out there. molly hunter live. continuing monitoring. >> headline. you have a building went up in flames, 7:00 east coast time. while many people were asleep. the potentially for this to be horrible situation. >> moved so quickly. >> moved quickly. >> 120 apartments in the building. keep an eye on it. we move on the to the other news back here locally, attorney general jeff sessions, defiant, defensive at times as he faced off with lawmakers under oath. >> sessions denied inclusion with russia and disputed allegations of another one-on-one meeting with the russian ambassador. but question as but sessions interactions with president trump went unanswered. >> session ex-confidence in

3:37 am
russian ambassador. >> i recuse myself from any investigation into the campaign for president. but i did not recuse myself from defending my honor against scurrilous and false allegations. >> meanwhile at the white house. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> president trump decleaned to dispute the comments of one of his long time friends who said that president trump is considering asking for the firing of special counsel robert mueller. but deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein the one person who could fire mueller testified the white house was not going to make that call. >> if there were good cause i would kid it. if there weren't. it wouldn't matter what any body says. >> sessions was asked if the president had tapes of his conversations with james comey. sessions said he did not know. remember it was more than a month ago, kendis, diane that the president tweeted that out. and to date, the white house still has the not confirmed. >> that's right. so many questions left there. lana zach from washington. meanwhile, copies of the memos
