Notifications made its way across social media just after midnight on Saturday, 01 October, noting a fire that had wildly spread on the premises of Devland Cash and Carry, south of Johannesburg. The flames caused damaged to one of the warehouses situated behind the store, causing a major blow.

Members of community forums who assisted on the scene had to plead  to others for more help as it is reported that firefighters who appeared on scene had to go back and fourth several times due to their supplies being insufficient, thus, only extinguishing the fire some time after sunrise on Sunday. The cause of the fire is still being investigated but no injuries have been reported, fortunately.
