Scores of Silanga Highrise Ward residents in Langata Constituency have been left homeless following an inferno that razed down their houses.

The fire that broke out on Wednesday evening razed down 100 houses.

Langata PM Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang'o shared the news about the inferno via his social media.

"A very sad evening at Silanga Highrise ward Langata constituency, 100 households have been burnt down," Jalang'o wrote.

According to Jalang'o, the Nairobi City County fire brigade rushed to the scene and contained the fire.

"...county fire team responded and the fire has been contained," the MP added.

The Langata MP also disclosed they are already working with Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja to resettle the affected families in newly build units on Thursday.

"...already working with Gov. @SakajaJohnson to rebuild the homes tomorrow and settle the affected families," Jalang'o wrote.

However, it was uncertain from the MP's social media posts if there were any injuries in the incident.

The cause of the evening inferno is yet to be established.
