Property worth millions destroyed in home fire

By Wilbeforce Netya | February 12th 2017 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

Property worth millions of shillings was destroyed after a fire gutted Kitale Nature Conservancy.

There were no casualties in the Friday evening fire.

According to Bonfas Ndura, the proprietor, the fire started at an adjacent farm and quickly spread to their roof. He claimed the county fire brigade delayed in responding and said the crew had to make several trips back to town to refill the water  tanker that often ran out of water.

But County Chief Superintendent in-charge of fire services Isaiah Marori said it was a challenge to coordinate and get water from the privatised water firm, NZOWASCO, controlled in Webuye, over 70 kilometers away.
