Kisii Central Business District traders are counting losses after a Fire broke out from Liquefied Petroleum Gas Explosion.

The fire spread out to retail shops housing Shivling Supermarket destroying properties of unknown value.

According to witnesses, the fire broke into one of the shops which is said to have been selling gas cylinders before spreading further to neighboring shops at around 3pm today.

“We could hardly do anything. No one was aware of any tragedy, people shouted signaling smoke and within a few fire was rapidly spreading all over until we had to run,” witness confessed.

As 4 PM no fire fighters had arrived at the scene.

This comes two days after a truck ferrying Liquefied Petroleum Gas exploded along Nairobi- Mai Mahihu Road leaving six cars in ashes.
