Queen Elizabeth and her grandson, Prince William, visited a sports center that has been turned into a place of support for fire victims. Officials say their investigation has revealed no criminal act was involved.

"Our specialist investigators and experts have examined what we believe is the original location where the fire started and based on what we know, there is nothing to suggest at this time that the fire was started deliberately," said Commander Stuart Cundy of the London Metropolitan Police.

Wednesday's fire incinerated the 24-story Grenfell Tower. Officials admit it's likely not all of the victims will be identified, as some were burned beyond recognition.
