A fire broke out in Braamfontein in Johannesburg on Tuesday afternoon. 

The blaze was reported at the corner of De Korte and Bertha streets. 

Johannesburg EMS spokesperson Nana Radebe said emergency workers were called to the scene at about 3pm. 

“We found an E-goli gas truck had caught alight and the fire had spread to a building,” Radebe said. 

“The fire was contained and no injuries were reported.”

Unconfirmed reports stated the blaze was caused by a “gas explosion”. 

Radebe said this could not be confirmed.

She said the cause of the blaze would be investigated.

Bystander Natasha Amora told TimesLIVE: “We were chilling here when we heard an explosion and people started running down the street to go and take videos.

“We found out it was a gas explosion and the building was on fire. The fire department quickly responded and people have been evacuated.”
