Serving the Community, Welgelegen. Area Manager Smith was dispatched to the convenience store in Welgelegen after Central Station received a fire alarm. Upon arrival, Officer Smith went to check the premise and noticed smoke coming from the receiving area. He immediately requested that Central Station contact one of the keyholders as well as the Fire Brigade. Area Manager Opperman stood down to provide assistance. One of the keyholders arrived at the premises and shortly after, so did the Fire Brigade. It was discovered that the biltong drier had caught alight and the fire was extinguished quickly.
