    Residents used buckets, twigs, and soil in an attempt to put out the fire and prevent it from spreading to the nearby buildings.

    The businesses were left counting losses as their wares were destroyed in the fire even as they made every effort to salvage the little they could.

    In a previous interview, a County Director of County Fire and Rescue Services disclosed that electrical faults, cooking equipment, cigarettes, domestic violence, children playing and improvised lanterns had been majorly cited as the main causes of fire outbreaks.

    “Illegal tapping of electricity and lose connections, and use of adulterated fuel in their paraffin stoves are the leading causes of infernos in the slums,” he conveyed.
