BY UPESI NEWS REPORTER,NAIROBI,2ND JAN ,2017-Residents of Satellite Plot Ten area in Dagoretti Corner, Nairobi County are counting huge losses after fire gutted down 30 housing units Monday afternoon.
Upesi News has since established nothing was salvaged in the inferno that is reported to have started at around 1pm, before spreading to surrounding houses.
Victims whose houses were burnt says they lost all their belongings, and accused Nairobi Fire fighters of taking too long to respond to the crisis.
The residents have also lamented the poor access roads which hampered efforts to contain the fire.
Satellite Ward MCA Samuel Ndung’u has, however, faulted poor construction, saying the houses were erected on road reserves.
