Traders count losses after fire at Gikomba Market

A section of Nairobi’s Gikomba market was razed down early Thursday after a fire broke out at 2 am.

Witnesses say the fire burnt down a section of the groceries market with fire fighters managing to contain the fire, which is the second such incident this year.

In June 2018, at least 15 people died while more than 60 were injured in a night fire at the market.
