On Sunday 3rd July 2022 a fire broke out at Kioi area, Kayole at around noon. Business shops were burnt to ashes with only those near the main road managing to save some goods but no one was hurt.

“It took firefighters two hours to arrive at the scene. If they got here earlier, then the damage won’t be this much,” a witness said. The incident altered the running of matatus in the area as all the saved goods were scattered on the road forcing matatus of the No.20 line, No.17 and 1960 to look for an alternative panya route.

Police arrived at the scene to restore order and control the huge crowd that had gathered around. It took a while for the road to be clear since the place was smoky upto 4pm.

The burnt place consisted of a pork butchery, three furniture shops, three posho mills, a matatu booking office, a second hand furniture dealer among other businesses.

The cause of the fire is still unknown but it is automatically not electricity as the area residents experienced blackout since morning to late in the evening. The location also is not near a transformer.

The incident gave opportunity to metal works brokers who fled to the seen for a hustle. Some incurred minor burns as most of the metals were still hot.

Investigations are still ongoing and the fate of the business owners is yet to be determined.
