In a statement seen by the iVerify Network of Fact-Checking Desks and issued by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) on October 28, 2022, following reports of the alleged volcanic eruption at Mt. Longonot, it was noted that, contrary to earlier reports, there was a fire outbreak on October 27, on the southern side of Mt. Longonot National Park. The KWS stated that there was no volcanic eruption of the mountain, as some reports on social media platforms had previously indicated.
On Friday, KWS tweeted a video of an aerial view of the crater, in which it is clear that the crater has not erupted. According to KWS, the fire was put out after an emergency response team dispatched to the area managed to contain and eventually extinguish the inferno. The fire is said to have destroyed approximately 40 hectares of bushland.
