WEDNESDAY was not a good day for local firefighters with two major fires raging in Mbombela and White River and according to inside information, local teams running out of water. Working on Fire was also on the scene and it is believed that all fire fighting resources of the local municipality were in attendance.

It is still not clear what caused the devastation in Nelspruit as two building  down close to Boxer burnt down. In White River, a home on the old Plaston Road burnt to the ground.

NewsHorn will update our readers on the current state of our fire services in due course. It is no secret that the local fire department is under resourced and does not have enough staff.
