|Gas Explosion in Nairobi, Businesses & Houses Up in Flames [PHOTOS] by Kenyans247(m): Mon 23, March, 2020 07:49am|
Traders in Kangemi are counting losses after a huge fire broke out in the region next to Loresho Chief's Camp razing down houses.
A source at the scene of the fire told Kenyans.co.ke that the outbreak was caused by a gas explosion.
The fire broke out on the night of Sunday, March 22, and one woman was feared to have been burnt inside one of the houses that went up in flames.
"I heard a gas exploded on a few houses and shops burned down. One woman, I think, was reportedly burnt inside her house," stated the source who sought anonymity.
Firefighters arrived at the scene and helped contain the fire.
The Kangemi market has seemingly been a hotbed of fire outbreaks with other incidences reported roughly a month apart, in February and March 2019.
In February, a huge inferno broke out at Kibagare slum near the flyover on the Loresho side.
The fire engulfed the Sodom area in Kangemi and burnt dozens of properties to the ground.
In March 2019, another fire broke out at Mountain View right next to Kangemi flyover along Waiyaki Way, Nairobi.
The break out led to a severe snarl-up along the highway, especially since the slum borders a road construction site.
