Kenya’s Tsavo National Park: Fire put out after two days

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) says it has contained a huge fire which started on Saturday afternoon at Tsavo National Park.

The KWS blamed arsonists and police say they are pursuing suspects.

Hundreds of local volunteers and the military took part in putting out the fire.

Tsavo, in south-eastern Kenya, is the country’s biggest national park and home to hundreds of animals such as lions, elephants and buffaloes.

It is visited by thousands of local and international tourists each year.

KWS described the fire as “horrendous” and thanked the hundreds of volunteers trying to put out the fire.

“Your efforts and sacrifices are appreciated beyond words,” the service said on Twitter.

The military used helicopters to pour water on the fire.
