Huge fire engulfs in Southlands Langata, Nairobi
On Sunday night Dozens of people were left homeless when a huge fire razed down a huge part of a slum in Langata area, Nairobi. There are fears of casualties as the fire raged to the night as engines that rushed there stayed far away from the burning structures for long without access.
The fire is said to have started from one of the affected structures at Kijiji area opposite Southlands before spreading fast to other areas. Police said they could not tell if there were casualties of the fire that broke out at about 9pm.
Huge flames of the fire emanated from the area as it spread fast. Firefighters said they had difficulties accessing the site of the fire. “The engines cannot get in and the fighters are here making calls. There is no road there,” said Jack Okinyi, a resident at Southlands.
