Three Killed in Langata Fire

So sad!

The National Disaster Management Unit has confirmed that the three died out of fire burns.

Dozens of people were left homeless when a huge fire razed down huge parts of a slum in Langata area.

The fire is said to have started from one of the affected structures at Kijiji area opposite Southlands before spreading fast to other areas.

Huge flames of the fire emanated from the area as it spread fast. Firefighters said they had difficulties accessing the site of the fire.

“The engines cannot get in and the fighters are here making calls. There is no road there,” said Jack Okinyi, a resident at Southlands.

He added that the fire spread fast due to heavy winds and presence of cooking gas that exploded in intervals as locals fought it with bare hands and other crude weapons.

Nearby estates Onyonka and Southlands were under threat and some residents rushed to their houses to pick valuables in case they were affected.
