Quick response saves Hdorp supermarket from blaze

23 October 2017

Kouga firefighters were quick to respond to a fire and managed to save a popular supermarket in Humansdorp, though there was no such luck for the franchise's bottle store. 

The municipality's emergency room received a call at 10:22 pm on Friday that the Tops bottle store in Main Street, was on fire.
 
The bottle store is an annex to the main Spar grocery store and the fire could have resulted in the entire building being destroyed.

Social Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson said firefighters were immediately sent to the scene and backup was called from the Jeffreys Bay fire department. 
"The fire started and was contained to the Tops liquor store. There was significant  damage to the contents and the structure. The supermarket section only suffered smoke damage."

"The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage," said Benson.
