A huge fire has destroyed warehouses of a factory reducing to ashes property valued at millions of shillings in Industrial Area, Nairobi. The fire broke out at about 4 am at a plastic factory spreading fast before fire engines arrived and contained.

Police say there were no staff inside the premises when it broke out but so far property has been destroyed. Officials said the fire started from one of the godowns there before spreading to others. 

In another incident a fire destroyed a house in Dagoretti area. The fire was started by a gas explosion. The owners of the house had lit their cylinder before it exploded last night.
