Fire at Kings Park Stadium

2012-07-19 08:22

Durban - Firefighters were called to the scene of a blaze at Mr Price Kings Park Stadium early on Thursday morning, a report said.

East Coast Radio reported that emergency workers were called out to the scene just after 06:30 on Thursday.  

It is thought that the blaze started on one of the stands, although it is uncertain what started it.  

Metro police closed off Jacko Jackson Drive between the old NMR Avenue and Goble Road, ECR said.

A witness told ECR that she saw flames rising about a metre into the sky.

    I wouldnt rule out foul play. The powers that be have been trying to force the Sharks to move to Moses Mabida for a while

      Lets hope Newlands doesn't catch fire with it's "inadequate" safety procedures and exit before next weekend... :)))

      Mmm... It is a mystery as to how a fire can start at an empty stadium at 6h30 in the morning all by its self. Think WP Rugby will have to get some extra security in at Newlands for the next couple of weeks.
