Speaking to News24 from the scene, eyewitness Suveer Singh said firefighters were currently battling the blaze.

“The fire was initially quite bad and there was a lot of smoke. But it seems to have calmed down now that the firefighters have started working on it. It seems that many people have been evacuated from the mall itself.”

Marshall Security Services spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said emergency services were on scene.

He said the fire was believed to have started in an extractor system of one of the fast food outlets.

Attempts by News24 to reach Gateway management have so far been unsuccessful.
