Millions reduced to ashes in mid-morning inferno.

Some of the scenes during the Tuesday morning fire in Thika.

Property estimated to be millions of shillings was destroyed after an inferno razed down a macadamia factory in Thika West Sub-County.

The mid-morning incident near the Thika High School main gate that reduced the entire factory is said to have emanated from one of the refuse stores and spread very fast to other parts of the storeroom.

The real cause of the fire still remains a mystery. According to eyewitness reports, there were no operations going on at the store at the time of the fire outbreak.

Fire fighters and rescue officials arrived at the scene in a record seven minutes and managed to put out the fire before it spread to adjacent buildings.

However, no casualties have been reported.
