An estimated number of three shops at Chepseon Trading Center have been blazed to the ground after one of the shops caught fire. This has left business owners counting losses. With the aid of the street lights, residents in the area pulled together to put out the fire in vain. Luckily, no casualties have been reported.
With the cause of the inferno still yet to be established, the Kericho County Emergency Response Department have once again failed to show up. In the past, the County's Fire Fighting team have been accused of laxity while responding to such emergencies. The fast growing Chepseon Trading Center along the Nakuru-Kericho Highway lacks a fire station, a necessity that needs be addressed.
The number of incidents related to fire accidents in the area have become a growing concern. Last month, about two shopping facilities were burnt down and property of unestimated amount destroyed not very far away from the now burning scene. This has left residents panicking. However, the public has been asked to observe safety precautions in a bid to curb such accidents.
