Nairobi county government immediately deployed four firefighting vehicles to the scene.

However, only two of the fire engines made it to the scene, and this was because the other two were caught up in heavy traffic and could not access the business complex soon enough according to City Hall.

No casualties had been reported as of Tuesday morning hours after the fire incident.

Malik Heights which has been open since 2017 houses major business premises worth several millions of shillings in investment.
