Fortunately no injuries were sustained when the rear of a Truck somehow caught alight whilst driving in Anton Lembede Street before Aliwal Street this afternoon.

Just after 15:30 Rescue Care Paramedics were called to the fire in the city centre. Together with the Durban Fire Department Paramedics arrived to find the rear of the truck well alight. Fortunately the driver was able to exit the vehicle before sustaining any injuries. The Fire Department worked quickly to extinguish the blaze. Traffic was severely affected in the City centre whilst emergency personal worked to clear the scene.

AT this stage the cause of the fire is unknown however all the necessary authorities were on the scene and will be investigating further.

Kind Regards,
