Property worth an estimated Sh35 million has been reduced to ashes after fire erupted in Mtwapa town, Kilifi County.
Three night clubs, Bistro, Naiz and Bridges were among those affected by the fire which broke out Tuesday at around 2.30am. It also burnt other business stalls.
M-Pesa stalls, wine and spirits stores, two retail shops, a salon and a movie shop were among other business destroyed by the fire.
The incident caused panic in the resort town which is frequented by revellers who scampered for safety when the clubs caught fire.
Eyewitnesses said the fire started after an electric fault from a power pole near Naiz club before it spread to the other clubs and business stores.
