Fire Razes Section of Toi Market in Kibera Nairobi

A huge fire has razed a section of Toi Market in Kibera, some seven kilometres from Nairobi’s central business district.

Witnesses told the Nation that the flames broke out at 3am on Tuesday and by 6am, they had reduced to ashes property worth millions of shillings.

By 6.30am, the flames were still spreading fast and shanties, including those in residential areas, could be seen smouldering after being reduced to ashes.

Clouds of black smoke could also be seen billowing from make-shift stalls that were used to store bales of apparel overnight.
