The teacher, identified as 45 year old Kiruga Gikonyo, is said to have locked himself inside his house when the incident happened earlier this morning.

He was the only casualty in the fire that saw all his property destroyed, leaving his family homeless.

His wife, Charity Njeri, said that at the time of the fire, she had been living at her in laws house because the husband had become too violent.

On this day, he had come home drunk and could be heard shouting all over how he would burn down his parents house with everyone inside it.

According to the Area Assistant Chief, David Wangara, the teacher had been known to have an alcohol problem and he had even been taken to a rehabilitation center but never recovered.

The Area Assistant Chief cautioned many people around the area to avoid alcohol as the cause of the fire is being determined.
