The Grenfell Tower fire will increase safety standards as much as the King's Cross station fire which happened 30 years ago on Saturday, London Fire Brigade says.
Thirty-one people died when an escalator fire, thought to have been caused by a dropped match, ripped through part of the London Underground station on November 18 1987.
The devastation and a subsequent public inquiry led to stricter fire safety regulations.
Speaking ahead of the 30th anniversary of the fire, LFB's director of operations Tom George said:
Police believe 71 people were killed in the Grenfell Tower blaze in west London five months ago.
Smoking was immediately banned on all parts of the Tube after the King's Cross disaster and wooden escalators were replaced.
