The City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Service are currently on the scene battling the fire that broke out at the Bellville Civic Centre this morning.

Jermaine Carelse, spokesperson for the City’s Fire and Rescue Service, said that they were alerted to the fire by a security company.

“A security company reported smoke issuing from the basement at 05:36. The first arriving officer from Belhar Fire requested additional resources as the fire has escalated to the roof section,” Carelse said.
