blaze(名詞)火焰

A deadly London high-rise blaze which happened on June 14 claimed at least 58 lives and the toll number seemed to be on the increase. Both the Kensington and Chelsea Council leaders had been working around the clock to handle the enormous challenges. The government has sent in some of its staff to bolster the relief effort, provide humanitarian assistance.
一場發生在六月十四日的倫敦高樓惡火,目前已知奪走至少五十八條寶貴性命,而這個數字還有可能繼續攀升。肯辛頓及切爾西區政府正為這場災難忙得焦頭爛額。英國政府也派遣人員籌措救援事宜,提供後續人道協助。

engulf(動詞)吞沒;吞噬

The 24-story Grenfell Tower was rapidly engulfed by flames in just a few hours. The new cladding on the building has since been named as a potential factor in the quick spread of the fire. The tragedy has ignited a debate on fire safety standards. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan even suggested high-rise tower blocks dating from the 1960s and 1970s could be torn down in the wake of the fire, which he said may well be the “defining outcome of this tragedy.”
樓高24層的倫敦格蘭菲塔公寓大樓在火勢開始數小時後,即被熊熊大火吞噬。大樓外新裝修的覆層經推測應是火勢迅速蔓延的主因。這場悲劇引發了大樓防火安全的激烈討論。倫敦市長沙迪克汗甚至提出在60及70年代蓋的高樓都應該在這場火災緊訊後拆除,這可能是這場悲劇帶給我們的結論。
