A 40-year-old man in Molo, Nakuru County, has been arrested after he reportedly set his house ablaze in an incident that left four people dead.
Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri told The Standard they were alerted by residents on Saturday morning saying that a house was on fire.
"We got a call from a resident of Kapsita Village in Elburgon requesting assistance to rescue people trapped inside a burning house," she said.
Kiraguri explained that efforts by the residents to put out the fire were futile, leading to the deaths of four people; a mother and her three children.
Residents said they met with the suspect who was fleeing towards Molo town, seized and handed him over to the police.
The suspect is being held at Elburgon Police Station helping police with investigations.
