Many structures in the Mathare neighborhood of Nairobi County were destroyed by fire.

Wednesday, August 31st, videos showed the fire quickly spreading through the densely populated area.

Screams could be heard as inhabitants tried to warn one other that their homes, most of which were built of iron sheets, had been damaged.

Since the event caused a traffic jam on Juja Road, motorists were urged to take other routes.
As the region’s passages are not well identified, firemen are thought to have one of their major barriers when trying to access the area.
