The fiery scenes that took place at the Yeoville Market in Johannesburg early on Tuesday morning are being investigated by Gauteng police.


Despite being less than a kilometer away, they arrived to find firefighters putting out many flaming stalls after receiving an anonymous complaint about the incident.

According to Provincial Police spokeswoman Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo, authorities are still unable to determine what started the incident.

Johannesburg's Emergency Management Services (EMS) arrived at the burning Yeoville Market and immediately got to work putting out the fire. Just after midnight, they answered the call of a fire.

The Yeoville Market did not sustain significant structural damage as a result of the incident, according to Nana Radebe-Kgiba, a spokesperson for Johannesburg EMS. Only 23 of the more than 200 stalls in the building caught fire after the fire was put out, according to a preliminary investigation.

The extent of the damage to the Yeoville Market, according to Radebe-Kgiba, could also not be determined by the EMS.


Firefighters received credit for successfully putting out the blaze that had been burning for more than a week at Somerset West's Lourensford Wine Estate on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain.

To prevent any more flare-ups, the Cape Winelands District's fire rescue teams carried out post-disaster rehabilitation plans in the area. Alan Winde, the premier of the Western Cape, and Geordin Hill-Lewis, the mayor of Cape Town, both commended them for their efforts.

The wildfires, which firefighters put out, began on June 8 on a Wednesday. Three days later, it flared up once more, and three days after that, it expanded to the Helderberg Nature Reserve, which is located not far away.
