RELATED NEWSKENYA - rangers and residents are struggling to control bush fires that have engulfed a third of one of the nation's best-known wildlife parks. The fire was accidentally started in a nearby village and has already destroyed large patches of the 188 sq km Lake Nakuru National Park. When the fire began, grass parched from a recent lack of rain made fertile fuel.

Game wardens said the fire appeared to have largely spared the wildlife, although a reporter saw a charred turtle.
