Boy, 2, perishes in Mukurwe-ini fire

17 July 2013, 10:49 Joseph Mukubwa

A 2-year-old boy died Tuesday morning after the house they were sleeping in caught fire at Mweru village in Mukurwe-ini, Nyeri county.

William Ng'ang'a had been left under the care of his brother in the morning by their mother Tabitha Wanjiru who had gone to buy milk from a nearby shop at around 8.30am.

On returning, she found the 3-room mud house on fire.

The boy perished in the incident. The other child escaped unhurt as he was rescued by neighbours who also helped put off the fire.

The cause of the fire was not immediately established.

Speaking at the scene of the fire, Mukurwe-ini Police boss George Ouko said that the mother of three had gone to the shop with the youngest baby.

Ouko added that the father of the children was not in the house at the time of the incident since he resides in Nairobi.

The charred remains were removed to Mukurwe-ini District hospital mortuary.
