An Armenian family miraculously escaped from the fire that engulfed Grenfell Tower high-rise in London, on June 14.
Mesrob Kassemdjian told Today how he helped his 68-year-old relative and together came out of the burning building.
“The building caught fire like a candle,” said Kassemdjian, who was up watching a movie when he heard sirens approaching the building.
Kassemdjian and his girlfriend awoke his aunt and headed to the stairwell, alerting his neighbors along the way.
They lived on the 17th floor of the building.
Seventy people died in the fire.
