THE Tongaat Fire Department was called out to the KNA Centre in Tongaat this past week after an apparent cooking fire got out of control.

It is alleged that a gas cylinder exploded.

IPSS Medical Rescue said two people were trying to cook food in the bathroom area using a gas cylinder, after load shedding was implemented that morning.

“They were apparently trying to cook food when the flames just got bigger and bigger the flames set alight the room.

“The Tongaat Fire Department responded quickly and controlled the blaze. Only one person was injured.”
