  • Description

    A FIRE, WHICH STARTED IN A HUT, SWEPT THROUGH AN AFRICAN TOWNSHIP ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF NAIROBI, DESTROYING MORE THAN FIFTY HOUSES.

    DESPITE THE EFFORTS OF THE FIREMEN, THE FLAMES SPREAD, MAKING MANY HOMELESS.

    POLICE WORKED TO KEEP THE CROWDS OF ANXIOUS HOUSE-HOLDERS, AND SIGHTSEERS BACK TO A SAFE LOCATION.

    HOUSEHOLDERS SAVED WHAT LITTLE THEY COULD SNATCH OUT OF THEIR BURNING HOMES.

    ONCE THE BLAZE HAD BEEN PUT OUT THEY SEARCHED TO SEE IF THEY COULD SALVAGE ANY MORE. POTS, PANS AND CHAIRS LAY SCATTERED AS THE GENERAL DEBRIS WAS CLEARED.

    THERE WERE NO REPORTS OF INJURIES TO ANY PEOPLE.
