A Destructive Fire

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Murang'a, Kenya
Map of A DESTRUCTIVE FIRE It was a hot Sunday afternoon. I was taking a nap when i was abruptly awoken from my sleep by screams. As i came to learn later, a young woman by the name of Mariana had left her young child playing on her compound and had rushed at her neighbours to pay up some food on the stove. The grass- thatched house had taken up seconds to catch fire had spread to other houses. The child has chocked by smoke and completely burned to death. The fire spread at alarming rate causing alot of havoc before it was completely put out. A great loss ensued in terms of lives and property and the community was engulfed with sadness and desperation by evening. Luckily our member of parliament Hon. Elius Mbau greatly assisted us both financially and a temporary camp was built to house the homeless. The deceased were buried and their loved one consoled. At the moment new brick houses are being put up with CDF funds and we expect to have a calm life once more with God's blessings. Read more.
