Cape Town - Part of a roof at a Cape Town Victorian-era Esperanza Guest House caught fire at around 12:00 on Monday, the city's fire and rescue services said.

Nobody was injured in the fire which also affected a few rooms at the boutique bed and breakfast establishment.

Fire services spokesperson Theo Layne said vehicles were busy with damping down activity to make sure the fire didn't start again.

Once the fire was completely extinguished, a report would be compiled to establish what the probable cause of the fire was at the mansion in Oranjezicht.
