Huge Fire Razes Down A Forest Near Machakos Girls High School Last Night

Last night, a very huge fire brought down large part of a forest located near the Machakos Girls High School in California village, Misakwani Sub-location, Machakos County.

According to the Machakos County Fire Emergency Services Director David Mwongela, the fire emanated from one man who lit on fire to burn a very small grass waste in his area of residence where a very strong wind blew intensifying the fire which ended up spreading to the other parts. His efforts to switch off the fire bore no fruits.

The fire fighters responded quickly as they arrived there to bring into control the fire which was almost about to consume the Machakos Girls dormitories. However, no casualties was reported.

Residents are usually advised to be careful when burning their wastes to avoid some perils like these happening. Also, the counties fire fighting departments should always be vigilant so that in case of fire eruptions, they can respond quickly.
