Fire fighters put off fire at Newlife Africa International Orphanage yesterday

Property of unknown value was destroyed in a fire that broke out at the Newlife Africa International orphanage in Langalanga estate, Nakuru.

The fire reportedly started in one of the rooms at around 3pm yesterday before spreading to other rooms at the orphanage, which houses over 50 children.

Nakuru East Deputy County Commissioner Herman Shambi said no casualties were reported.

"The children who were in the building were rescued before the fire got to the second floor where many of them were. We have started investigations to establish what caused it," said Mr Shambi.

The facility also hosts a primary and nursery school. According to the school deputy head teacher, Mr Felix Oloo, most of the children had gone home except for a few from nursery school who were still around waiting to be picked.
