“We understand the pain our people are going through especially those who lost everything. We are doing all we can to help them recover. We hope the assistance offered will help towards rebuilding their lives,” said the Deputy County boss.

The fire consumed a business premise, residential homes, several bags of maize, household goods and five sheep.

The affected families, each was given beddings, food stuff and utensils.
