House destroyed by fire in Windhoek

Niël Terblanché

THE Emergency Services of Windhoek was called to the Academia neighbourhood of the capital to extinguish fires after a house on the corner of Socrates and Jaspers streets burst into flames.

One of the neighbours saw thick smoke billowing out of the house and called the Windhoek Fire Brigade to the scene.

According to one of the emergency workers, the residents of the house were not at home when the fire broke out. Emergency personnel had to break down several gates to gain entry to the house to extinguish the fire.

Most of the house was destroyed by the flames and although the actual cause will be the subject of an official investigation, it seems that a thatched roof over the braai area caught fire which spread through the rest of the residence.
