Three children were killed in Alego Usonga, Siaya County, after their house caught fire on Thursday night.
The three children, a four-year-old twin and their six-year-old sibling, were burnt beyond recognition in the night inferno.
Confirming the incident, Bar-Agulu area chief Eliakim Ohanya said that the fire broke out at around 9:30 pm when the family of four was asleep in their one-roomed house.
The mother is reported to have fled to her safety, leaving behind the minors in the grass-thatched house.
The woman’s ten-year-old niece who was sleeping on the couch was also able to flee the house.
The bodies have been removed to Siaya County Referral Hospital mortuary.
