The firefighter brigades have cordoned the area around a building on Maydon Road, Maydon Wharf in Durban, after it caught fire in the early hours of Monday.
“There are no injuries reported at this stage, but we are on standby. The Durban fire department is on the scene with multiple water carriers and [officials] are attacking the fire from different angles,” Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson told the media.
According to the reports, the top floor and roof are currently on fire, but the services give an optimistic prognosis the blaze would soon be contained.
The road was also blocked in order to allow the emergency vehicles to easily reach the scene.
