THE Msunduzi Fire and Rescue Services were forced to dispatch a back-up vehicle to take more water to extinguish a house fire in Prestbury, as city engineers were in the process of repairing a burst water pipe in the area yesterday morning.

A mother and her six-month-old baby were in the house at the time when the fire broke out, but they both managed to escape to safety. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
