Hospital fire contained

09 May

A fire that broke out at the construction site of the Mitchells Plain Hospital on Wednesday morning was largely under control, Cape Town fire and rescue said. Spokesman Theo Layne said the fire broke out at 11am in an administration wing on the site, at the corner of the R300 and AZ Berman drive. “The main part of the fire is basically out, it’s just some inaccessible areas inside the building which firefighters are now attending to. They are busy dampening down as we speak,” he said. No construction workers were in the area at the time the blaze began. Lane said the damage to the area was significant. “Most of that (area) will have to be rebuilt. It was almost completed. The project manager was saying the floor area was the only thing that had to be done.” The hospital, with a project value of about R394 million, was due to be completed at the end of October this year. The cause of the fire was being investigated
