The Dollars take-away kitchen in Salt River caught fire on Thursday at about 06:00.

According to the City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue spokesperson Theo Layne, the fire was caused by a faulty short circuit.

“Two fire engines, one rescue vehicle and one hydraulic platform responded. The fire was extinguished and building ventilated by 07:30. No injuries were reported.”

He says other parts of the building had smoke and water damage.

The shop owner, Nazier Narker, says it is a huge loss for him.

On Thursday morning he said he was in no state to talk about it.
