Port St Francis restaurant gutted by fire

13 February 2019

A restaurant at Port St Francis was gutted by fire on Monday night. 

Kouga Municipality's Community Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson said the Fire Department was alerted to the fire at about 11:30pm on Monday. 

"Fire-fighting crews from St Francis and Humansdorp responded and found the restaurant, Indigo Moon, in flames.

"They were able to contain the fire to the immediate vicinity. 

"Sadly, the restaurant was gutted while an adjacent chocoloate shop was damaged extensively. The offices of a fishing company also suffered water damage." 

He said the flames were extinguished by about 01:30, following which fire crews continued with damping and overhaul work.

The cause of the fire could not yet be confirmed at the time of going to print. 

"Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the affected business owners. 

"We would further like to thank our fire-fighters for their quick action and for preventing what could have turned into a far greater tragedy."
