NAIROBI, Kenya, May 15 – The Sarit Centre shopping mall is set to be re-opened on Thursday this week after it was closed following a fire the started on the second floor earlier this month.

A poster from the mall’s management stated that the establishment will re open its doors at 8.30am.

The fire started a week ago at around 10 am and appeared to have been contained after Nairobi fire fighters worked for about an hour.

Rescuers and onlookers were however shocked when dark smoke engulfed parts of the first and second-floor moments later, forcing another round of frantic efforts to put it out.

Raging flames were seen at the entrance, the lifts and stairs.

Fire engines from G4S, the Army, National Youth Service and KK Security were called in for reinforcement and two private water bowsers were driven to the scene to replenish the fire engines.
