A local National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) team was called on to fight a fire in an unusual vessel – a tumble dryer.

The Kommetjie NSRI crew were activated following reports of a fire .on Wednesday evening.

However, instead of launching their boat to rush to assistance, they instead reported to the scene at the laundromat at the Shell garage in Kommetjie.

NSRI Kommetjie station commander Ian Klopper says on arrival at the scene, the crew gained access to the laundromat and found a tumble dryer alight.

The flames were doused by the crew and the area was made safe after the arrival of the Fire Department.

“Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services, the SA Police Services, CMR (Cape Medical Response) responded and NSRI Kommetjie dispatched NSRI crew and our mobile fire trailer.”
