Fire Wreaks Havoc at Nairobi Airport in Kenya

On Wednesday, a huge fire ripped through the arrivals hall of the Nairobi International Airport, the main airport in Kenya and the largest airport in East Africa.  The airport was closed and all inbound flights were rerouted.  According to Michael Kamau, the cabinet secretary for transport and infrastructure, there were no injuries due to the incident.  Wednesday was the 15th anniversary for the U.S Embassy bombings in Nairobi, but there has been no indication that terrorism was involved in the blaze.

Kenya’s anti-terror police boss, Boniface Mwaniki, said he was waiting for the fire to be put out so that he could conduct an investigation into the matter.  Dark black smoke was visible at a distance and according to passengers at the airport it took much time for the under-resourced fire brigade to get the blaze under control.  The airport is working to restore normal operations and airlines are working to help stranded passengers.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
