Residents of Ngala Estate in Nakuru East Sub County have appealed to the fire brigade in Nakuru and Kenya Power Company to do a check up on their power connections to avert fire incidents which they claim are caused by electric faults.
Speaking on Wednesday after a fire incident where property of unknown value was destroyed, the locals said they have been experiencing power faults in their houses.
They said if this is not checked and addressed in due course then more valuable properties will be lost in numerous fire incidents in the area.
“We want those concerned to come and do checkups on our power line connections since we have been experiencing power faults” said one of the residents.
This even as the cause of the Wednesday fire is yet to be established.
According to officers from Fire Department in Nakuru, investigations are on to establish what might have contributed to the incident.
“At the moment we cannot establish the cause of the fire not until we don investigations on the same” said one of the officers from Fire.
The fire officers calling on locals to report any faults they come across.
