Fire broke out in a foam mattress factory in Sunderland Ridge, resulting in injuries to at least four individuals, according to Tshwane Emergency Services.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Among the injured were a man, a woman, and a two-year-old child who were taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
Additionally, a fire officer sustained minor to moderate injuries after slipping and falling while commanding firefighting operations.
The cause of the fire is currently being investigated by Tshwane emergency services said spokesperson Charles Mabaso.
Upon receiving multiple calls reporting the fire, the Emergency Services Call Centre dispatched resources from four fire stations to the scene.
The firefighting efforts involved the use of three fire trucks, two fire ladder trucks, and a water tanker to combat and contain the blaze.
Unfortunately, the fire resulted in the destruction of three structures, three storage containers, and a truck.
At the time emergency services left the scene after extinguishing the fire, the total cost of losses had not yet been determined.
However, it is worth noting that containers containing an unspecified quantity of a chemical substance called Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate were successfully saved from the fire.
This chemical substance is commonly used in the production of foam mattresses.
