More than 20 people were injured on Tuesday evening after a fuel tanker burst into flames in Busia.
The injured were siphoning fuel from the tanker which had overturned near Suwo River Bridge.
Busia police boss Erasthus Muthamia said most of the victims were rushed to Busia District Hospital with burns.
The incident happens barely a week after more than 100 people lost their lives at Sinai slums in Nairobi while scooping fuel from a Kenya Pipeline Corporation depot at Lunga Lunga terminal.
