Lovers’ spat leads to arson
DURBAN CENTRAL – Earlier this morning, members from Durban Search and Rescue were called out to Treves Court McArthur Street in Albert Park, for a residential building fire.
A woman, involved in a domestic family feud with her husband, set a vehicle alight on the ground floor garage. The fire spread rapidly and the Fire Department battled to contain the fire due to the confined access. SAPS SearchAndRescue members quickly pulled the burning vehicle out onto the road using their winch. The fire was then extinguished by the Durban Fire Department preventing the spread to the rest of the building.
No injuries were reported and fire damage was contained to the storage area. Durban Central SAPS is investigating the case.
Provincial spokesperson for SAPS, Lt Thulani Zwane confirmed the incident. He said: “The couple argued and the wife set the vehicle alight. A case of arson has been opened.”
