Sad news coming from this year’s Lake of Stars Festival at Kabumba Hotel on the shores of Lake Malawi, is that Saturday night four vehicles were engulfed in a fire.
A possible faulty electrical issue with a vehicle in the main car park caused a fire at Lake of Stars on Saturday night.
High winds an simmering embers lead to a secondary fire and 4 cars were destroyed in the incident.
Several other vehicles were moved away from the site as a precaution and the area was securely cordoned to prevent further damage.
â€śThanks to the efficient collaboration of Lake of Stars security teams, the Malawi Defence Force and Kabumba Hotel the fire was quickly contained before becoming a major incident and without any injury or threat to life. We are extremely sorry that this has happened to impact what has otherwise been a fantastic festival so far. Our thoughts are with those whose cars and possessions have been damagedâ€ť Will Jameson, director of the festival said.
