Traffic came to a virtual standstill this afternoon, 1 October. Motorists and pedestrians stopping to watch firefighters extinguish a fire. Flames billowing out of an apartment at Dover Garden Flats.
A mother and her children watching the flames engulf their home and worldly possessions, left with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
The fire began earlier this afternoon, 1 October, with reports that the fire began underneath a couch in the flat.
Firefighters rushed to the scene to control the inferno and extinguish the flames, medics on hand in case of any injury and traffic officials controlling the traffic flow.
No injuries were reported during the incident and further investigations will be conducted.
