Johannesburg - A fire that broke out at a factory in Kya Sands near Randburg was contained by 05:00 on Monday morning, according to Johannesburg Emergency Management Services.

"We are now just busy dampening down the hot spots," said spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi.

Firefighters were called to the scene at around 04:00 by security officials.

"We've established that the factory was called Northern Cleaners and it specialised in cleaning clothes," said Mulaudzi.

"We don't know what started [the fire]."

He said most of the building had been destroyed.

No injuries were reported as no one was inside when the blaze started, said Mulaudzi.
