PROPERTY worth millions of shillings went up in flames on Monday night following a fire incident. The fire burnt two men hostels at Bondo University college in Siaya county.
The fire which broke out at 7.30 pm razed down two-storey buildings and burnt to ashes the students belongings. Villagers and students were unable to save the students property.
They could only access the ground and first floor, because the raging fire kept them at bay. Fire fighter engines arrived an hour later from Kisumu which is about 80 kilometres away.
A witness said he spotted smoke coming from the hostel building. The next thing he saw was a fierce fire engulfing the building.
Bondo police boss Paul Kiarie visited the scene and cordoned off the area. Kiarie said the cause of the fire could not be established.
