The fire caused power outages affecting Zakariya Park, Vlakfontein, Hospital Hills and parts of Lenasia South.

The fire started around midnight and the whole feederboard from one of the transformers was basically razed down that is why there are areas in the south without power.Isaac Mangena, Spokesperson - City Power
