Airports officials say the fire has not caused any flight interruptions.

In 2013, a fire at one of the airport’s terminal caused a major service interruption; with flights that were to land at JKIA being diverted to Moi International Airport, Mombasa and Kisumu International Airport.

The fire, according to an independent investigator, was caused by an electric fault, leaving a trail of devastating damage.

The national carrier, Kenya Airways, lost over Sh35 million in the fire.
