Sad Night as Fire Razes Homes & Businesses in Kangemi

Kangemi <a class=Fire"/>On Thursday night, December 8, a fierce fire tore through Kangemi Estate, demolishing hundreds of homes and businesses along the way.

Many families were forced to spend the night outside in the cold by the fire, while others stayed up late to help it advance into additional towns.

As locals fought to recover all they could, property worth millions of shillings was destroyed along its path.

A resident of Kangemi claims that the cause of the fire, which broke out early on Thursday, has not yet been determined.

A resident said, "The fire was reported at roughly 12.40 am, and is still continuing this morning."Kangemi Fire

According to reports, some residents were hurt while trying to flee the area.

Witnesses recalled that the fire was not quickly put out by Nairobi County fire engines.

A witness alleged that although a fire engine had arrived at the scene, it was too late to salvage the damaged property.

Thought to have originated from one of the homes, the exact location was a mystery to the locals.Kangemi Fire
