#MountKenyaOnFire Update: 7.45PM: Fires in the South under control. A great deal of work has been done by the men taken there early this morning by Tropic Air, KWS and KFS choppers. More teams went in from Castle Forest Station and Naro Moru to put fire breaks ahead of the same fire.
In the north, despite hard work in the Chogoria section by choppers, rangers, KDF men and the spray plane the fires continue to spread, some easing and going up higher where they will burn out and some flaring up again and even jumping the road.
The fires have come around the edge of the knoll on the east of Lake Alice.
A lot of work still to be done but everyone is trying their absolute best.
We have received so many kind donations and we are going to keep going.
Thanks to all the pilots, rangers and well wishers.
