Artist Khadija Saye lived with her mother on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower, a lower-income housing project in London’s North Kensington neighborhood. Neither escaped the blaze.
Police said the figure could change. Police had previously put the death toll at 30.
Fire departments in the United States and United Kingdom are increasingly using unmanned aircraft.
Police have confirmed 17 died in the blaze, but say the number will rise. Locals who knew people inside struggle to comprehend how this happened in one of London's richest areas.
