Fire incidents involving children have in the past year remained unsolved, as launched investigations remain inconclusive.

Two weeks ago, another fire incident reported in Kabete killed two children aged two years and four years. 

According to a neighbour, the mother had left the children in the house to pick up luggage from the bus stop.

Investigations done were inconclusive, as witnesses presumed faulty electricity wires might have caused the fire.

On Christmas day, a six-year-old child died after a house in Kayole police quarters caught fire. 

Police reports noted that a police officer was injured trying to save the deceased’s sister, who received extensive treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
