A section of Kenya’s main airport has been closed temporarily following a minor fire.

An electrical fault caused the “small fire” at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport’s Terminal 1E on Monday morning, the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said in a statement.

“The situation was quickly contained, with no injuries or casualties resulting from the incident,” the KAA said.

Power to the terminal has been temporarily shut off as a precautionary measure and all flight arrivals redirected to Terminal 1A, the statement added.

The incident caused panic as passengers and staff were evacuated from the affected area.
