Major fire outbreak in Kangemi's Mountain View area

Firefighters in Nairobi have for the most part of Tuesday afternoon fighting a major fire break out in Nairobi’s Kangemi slums.

The fire started at Mountain View right next to Kangemi flyover along Waiyaki Way, Nairobi.

The incident has caused a major traffic snarl up as the densely populated area is close to Waiyaki which is also undergoing an expansion construction project.

Witnesses have criticized the Nairobi County government for delays in sending firefighters.

The marshals arrived after most of the houses had been burnt down, displacing hundreds of families.
