Firefighters battle Johannesburg Checkers fire


The Checkers in Little Falls on the West Rand has caught on fire.

It is understood the fire started in the stock room on Friday morning.

Eyewitnesses said it appears as though no one has been injured.

“There is a fire that started in what looks like the warehouse. Thirty percent of the centre itself is under fire. I can see the flames gushing out of the roof of the building. All the people are evacuated. There is a tremendous amount of smoke inside the shop,” a man said.

Firefighters are on the scene.
