Survivors of the blaze expressed concern over Martin Moore-Bick's planned inquiry at a meeting Thursday night and asked why there have been no arrests.

The retired judge said he will investigate to the "very best" once the inquiry begins.

Residents said they were frustrated with the inquiry plans.

"People firmly believe that arrests should be made as a result of the outcome of all of this," said resident Melvyn Akins. "If arrests are not made, people are going to feel justice may not be being done."

The 14 June fire destroyed a public housing apartment block. The fire quickly spread along the 24-story building's exterior.
