Fire Breaks Out in One of Kenya's Biggest Forests

A raging fire has destroyed at least 2,000 acres of indigenous forest in Mount Kenya National Park. The fire which started a week ago is suspected to have to have been caused by honey harvesters and poachers. The forest is a major water tower in the country and the second highest mountain in Africa is famous for hiking, with statistics indicating that about 30,000 tourists hike the mountain every year.
