One photo shows a burnt-out elevator on an undisclosed floor of the public housing project that was ravaged in Wednesday’s inferno, while another shows an apartment that was reduced to rubble and white ash.

Fifty-eight people are confirmed or presumed dead in the fire and authorities fear that death toll will rise.

Two British ministers said Sunday that the new exterior cladding used in a renovation on Grenfell Tower may have been banned under U.K. building regulations. Police are investigating.
