According to Phantshang, reports indicated a Mr Price warehouse was ablaze around 5.30 pm on Saturday. There were no reports of casualties, and Phantshang maintained constant communication with emergency services throughout the incident.

Regarding the fire’s origin, Phantshang mentioned that the exact cause remained unknown. However, he speculated that a cooking fire or the burning of stolen cables could trigger it.


This fire incident occurred in the wake of another blaze that struck parts of an informal settlement in Bushbuckridge, Centurion, on Friday morning. Ward 57 councillor David Farquharson confirmed this incident, adding that these two fires followed closely on the heels of another tragic fire at Itireleng, which claimed the lives of five children inside a shack.
