Kenya’s international airport, situated in its capital city, Nairobi, was engulfed in a massive flame of fire this morning. According to the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) had been closed and passengers have been evacuated.
Cabinet secretary for transport Michael Kamau said the fire was “very severe” and urged people to stay away from the airport. Images showed flames raging from one of the main buildings.
The interior ministry tweeted that an evacuation of the entire airport was under way, with only essential personnel remaining, but said the fire had been contained. There have been no reports of any casualties and the cause of the fire is yet to be known.
Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is an important regional hub for East Africa, with many long-distance flights landing there to connect to countries across the region.
