Fire destroys Mathai Supermarket in Ruiru

Property worth millions of shillings was destroyed on Sunday night in a fire that broke out at Mathai Supermarket in Ruiru, Kiambu County.

Confirming the incident, Ruiru DCIO Cyrus Ombati said the fire began at around 2.30am.

The cause of the fire could not be immediately established.

Majority of the goods in the supermarket were reduced to ashes as efforts to put out the fire were hampered by water shortage in Ruiru.

The residents had to wait for fire engines from Thika, Kiambu and Nairobi.

Investigations into the fire incident are ongoing.
