Fire destroys Waltloo factory

Johannesburg - A fire destroyed a wood-laminating factory in Waltloo on Sunday, Tshwane emergency services said.

"We have the fire under control but it will burn throughout the night because of all the wood in the factory," spokesperson Johan Pieterse said.

"When we got here around 17:00, part of the roof had already caved in, but now it has collapsed completely, making access very difficult."

Pieterse said the flames could be seen all across Pretoria and the fire had great spectator value.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire was still unknown.

      What company is it? You know that reporting isn't what it used to be, they don't give any details unless it is a racism charge!

    Smoke is still floating across the sky. I live in La Montagne on a koppie and I couldn't see any flames but black smoke has been visible since the fire started. Just glad no ne got hurt. But a shame how many people will be without work now.
