BREAKING! Massive fire engulfs international airport in Nairobi, Kenya, totally guts immigration area
No reports yet as to a suspected cause but they are not ruling out terrorism.
A “massive” fire has broken out at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International airport, forcing one of East Africa’s largest transport hubs to shut down, officials say. The fire at east Africa’s busiest airport started at around 5:00am local time (02:00 GMT) in the immigration section of the departure lounge and spread to the international arrivals area, a Kenya Civil Aviation Authority official said on condition of anonymity.
