CAPE TOWN – Preliminary investigations suggest an explosion and fire at a Woodstock facility was caused by a gas leak.

On Thursday night, firefighters found several cylinders with liquefied gas on the territory.

Officials say there was an initial explosion, followed by a fire, followed by several secondary explosions.

Two people, including the owner of the shop, received seventy to one hundred percent burns.

Mayco member J. P Smith said the area had been “declared safe” last night.

“And solid waste has come to clear the road of debris, so I don’t think there’s any further risk.”

Two men, who suffered between 70 and 100% burns, were taken to Groote Schuur Hospital for treatment.
