Train coaches set alight in Cape Town
Cape Town - Three train coaches were set alight in Kuils River in Cape Town, Metrorail said on Friday.
Regional manager Lindelo Matya said one coach was completely destroyed while two were extensively damaged.
The fire started around 11:00 on Thursday. No injuries were reported.
Matya said arson was suspected. The damage was likely to run into several million rand.
Eight coaches had been burnt in the past six months.
"The loss [of the three coaches] further reduces our capacity to serve customers on a very busy route.
Our customers suffer the consequences of irresponsible, cowardly acts," he said.
Metrorail has offered a reward of up to R25 000 for information leading to a successful conviction.
