There was a horrifying moment after a bus was driving from Eldoret to Nairobi broke into flames causing panic among passengers.
According to the source, the incident occurred at a place known as Nangili in Eldoret, an eyewitness revealed that a blast sound was heard and suddenly fire broke out in heavy flames.
Reports indicated that passengers were forced to jump from the windows while others were using the emergency door to scamper for safety. Several people had minor cuts but no fatalities were reported.
Further reports indicated that there was no fire extinguisher around that could help them put it off. The vehicle burned into a bad condition. One of the firefighters from the county government of Eldoret came to the scene although the fire had destroyed everything.
Passengers were forced to look for other means to get back to their destinations while others remained stunted for they had lost everything in the vehicle including their documents. We thank God all of the passengers came out safe and sound.
Police officers were also informed and reported to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire. It was suspected that the default mechanical problem might be the cause.
