A mysterious fire has gutted six homes belonging to members of the same family in Kiwumbile Zone in Doko Parish in Namabasa Sub County in Mbale district.

The fire is said to have started from one of the homes around 9am on Monday and spread to others homes.

According to residents, every evening stones fall on their houses, which force them to abandon their homes.

Nuhu Yunus, one of the residents, says it all started in 2017 when stones started falling on the roof of their house until June this year when the mysterious fires started.   

He says the fire even catches the few items they have managed to rescue from the houses, which has perplexed them.
