Three Children Burnt to Death in House Fire by Kenyans247(1): Thu 09, April, 2020 01:02pm
Tragedy struck the quiet village of Mutitu Village in Ndaragwa Constituency, Nyandarau County after a fire razed down a home on Tuesday, April 9.

Three children who were in the house burnt to death as the fire ravaged their home.

Gideon Ngumi, the Nyandarua Police Commander speaking to Kenyans provided that the children were in the house alone when the fire started.
"Their mother had locked them in as she went about her business," clarified Ngumi.

It was during this period that the children were thought to have been playing when they inadvertently set the house ablaze.


"Now because they are young kids, they must have started playing with matches which is how the fire began," Ngumi stated.

The fire was finally arrested by neighbours who caught sight of the flames and came to offer their assistance.

"The neighbours saw the flames and came to assist but the fire had already spread significantly," explained Ngumi.

The three children who died in the flames were all minors, with the police boss placing their ages at below 12 years.

The police are ruling out the cause of the fire as deliberate and will not be proffering charges against the grieving mother.
It's not arson, it's an accident: it is just how children are," stated the police commander.


The penalty for arson under the laws of Kenya is life imprisonment.

One is found guilty of the offence if they willingly and unlawfully set fire to a building, a vessel, cultivated vegetable produce, or a mine.
