NAIROBI (AFP) - A large fire broke out at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Wednesday with plumes of smoke rising high in the air, shutting down one of east Africa's most important transport hubs.

"There is a serious fire at JKIA, but we are doing everything possible to avert a crisis," said Mutea Iringo, a senior official at the interior and national coordination ministry.
