Gas leak causes mayhem on Marine Drive

2017-06-15 06:01

A CROWD of customers scurried out of the Margate KFC on Saturday after an explosion, followed by a gasoline smell, broke out in the store.

The ordeal caused mayhem on Marine Drive for an hour, however, management assured people it was only a gas leak. Store manager Conrad Msomi said the leak happened because there was some residual gasoline as one of the employees was trying to change cylinders. “We use both gas and electrical stoves for cooking - this was an unfortunate mistake, but it was sorted out the same day and no one was injured,” said Msomi.
