Fire

Fire
Fire outbreaks are a common occurrence in Kibera's informal structures, where shops are in close proximity to one another and materials used in construction are highly flammable. This is complicated by a lack of fire fighting service, which makes fires one of the great daily risks that residents face. This fire broke out in Olympic Kibera, down the street from the nursery school location. (view small | med | large | orig)
