Residents at Markland House in, Notting Hill, West London - less than half a mile from Grenfell - feared a disaster similar to the one that killed 72 people in June 2017.
Some described the "horrendous memories" of the Grenfell Tower fire, which they had witnessed, and told of their fear as they quickly left their flats.
The tower block is just 200 metres from Grenfell Tower where a devastating blaze killed 72 residents in June 2017.
Housing minister Kevin Stewart said: "Grenfell Tower was a painful reminder how important building and fire safety is."
While this is certainly a step in the right direction and should help building owners going forward, it's been over two years since the Grenfell tragedy and people continue to campaign for safety in tower blocks, proving there is still so much to be done.
Campaigners at Grenfell United shone a spotlight on unsafe tower blocks on the second anniversary of the disaster yesterday.
A projection on west London's Frinstead House, a 20-storey block on the same estate as Grenfell, claimed: "2 years after Grenfell this building still has no sprinklers #demandchange."
Grenfell United, a group of survivors and the bereaved, said: "Today's announcement offers hope to people in dangerous blocks that the nightmare they have been living for nearly two years is almost over."
