The fire that broke on April 18 has been declared out of control. The city has taken to social media to document events that have been described as nothing short of “dramatic.”
The blaze is believed to have been caused by a fire made by a vagrant and not put out properly, according to SANParks. The restaurant at Rhodes Memorial has burned down almost completely.
Public donations towards the firefighting efforts can be dropped off at the Roeland Street fire station. Anyone who wishes to provide donations is advised that the four items required are: water, Energade, snacks and eye drops.
