Smoke is rising in Kenya’s capital due to gas explosions

  • Gas explosions at an industrial building in the capital of Kenya caused at least 29 injuries and two fatalities.
  • According to the police chief for the Embakasi neighborhood where the explosions happened as of 4:30 am.
  • The Kenya Red Cross shared a message on its X social media account about the transportation of 29 injured people.

Authorities said that early on Friday, gas explosions at an industrial building in the capital of Kenya caused at least 29 injuries, two fatalities, and a cloud of flaming smoke to rise above dwellings.

According to Wesley Kimeto, the police chief for the Embakasi neighborhood where the explosions happened, as of 4:30 am, the deaths of an adult and a youngster have been confirmed, and the number might go up as the day goes on.

Gas explosions

Residents of Nairobi were heard talking in alarming tones, and some of them were even screaming, as they recorded multiple recordings with their phones.

According to government spokesman Isaac Mwaura, a company was restocking gas cylinders when the fire broke out, severely damaging the building where the business was located.

After midnight, the fire was put out, although it was not clear what caused it. The Kenya Red Cross shared a message on its X social media account about the transportation of 29 injured people.

It was unclear whether city plans would be enforced given the industrial company’s proximity to residential areas. Building codes and standards have allegedly been disregarded by county government officials who have accepted bribes.
