EXCLUSIVE TO ONLINE: Ho­me gut­ted by fi­re in Nieu-bet­hes­da

Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Voorblad -

A hou­se in Nieu-bet­hes­da was re­cent­ly gut­ted by a fi­re.

A number of pe­op­le in the com­mu­ni­ty rus­hed to the sce­ne of the di­sas­ter to at­tempt to dou­se the fla­mes as the o­w­ners we­re out of town.

Ac­cor­ding to the towns' re­si­dents, calls to e­mer­gen­cy num­bers pro­ved fruit­less, and by the ti­me the fi­re en­gi­ne ar­ri­ved from Graaff-rei­net, de­spi­te stre­nu­ous ef­fort from the lo­cals, se­ve­re da­ma­ge had been do­ne to the pro­per­ty.
