Cape Town: Firefighters are battling a blaze at South Africa’s national Parliament Building in Cape Town, an official confirmed Sunday.
A dark plume of smoke and flames can be seen rising from the building in the center of the city.
The fire started in the early hours of the morning in the third-floor offices and spread to the National Assembly chamber, City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Jermaine Carelse told local media.
No people have been injured in the fire, which was reported by security guards, Carelse said. More than 35 firefighters are battling the fire, which appears to be threatening the building’s roof, Carelse said. (AP)
