The cause of the fire is yet to be known. Police said no injury was reported but property was destroyed in the fire.

The county government in Nairobi have in several occasions been criticised for their slow response to fires across the city.

The officials have complained that the fire engines are not insured, grounding their operations.

Areas affected by fire incidents often rely on private fire brigades which are costly to contain the fires.
