The service said the fire was contained just after 7am.

 

 

Fire and rescue services spokesperson Jermaine Carelse said the hotel was not yet operational as firefighters were still at the scene on Tuesday at 10am to extinguish some flames which had still not died down.

 

 

Carelse said in addition to the reception area, the fire spread to the entire kitchen and the upstairs areas where the offices were. It also damaged a bedroom and a bathroom.
