Nairobi - According to witnesses and the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) two children and an elderly man have been killed after a fire swept through several homes in Mathare Area 10 in the early hours of Friday morning.
Capital News reports that several residents were injured as they were fleeing for safety and were attended to by KRCS on site but the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
The fire which started just after midnight and was put out just before dawn sparked riots in the area because of lack of access roads that hampered the fire brigade from containing it.
