WATCH: Fire breaks out near Fauna


A fire has broken out on the N1 South, just past the Casino off-ramp in Bloemfontein this evening.

Reports of the fire first came through at around 19:00 on the afriforum neighbourhood watch forum and they got in contact with the fire department.

Gerrit Brandt, spokesperson for Afriforum said that fire season has officially started and due to the dry grass it can spark into larger veld fires.

“We would also like to thank the fire brigade for the quick response to the call out for assistance.”

The fire brigade is currently on the scene and has managed to put down most of the fire.

The cause of the fire is yet to be revealed at this time.
