Hundreds of houses were on Thursday evening burnt down by fire that hit Kangemi Beach slums in Nairobi County.
One person was reportedly injured in the fire that started at around 5PM.
Residents claim that the fire was caused by a gas cylinder that exploded in one of the houses.
Some of the people affected say that they were unable to salvage anything from the fire.
Fire fighters arrived at the scene more than an hour after being alerted.
