$600,000 structure fire at Amata - 26 March 2023

At 11:00pm this evening, CFS were alerted to a structure fire at a home in Amata, in the APY Lands.

The Amata brigade as well as SAPOL arrived at the scene to find the house fully alight, with CFS crews using defensive fire techniques to get the fire under control.

No one was at home at the time and due to the remote location of the property, it is estimated that damages are expected to be in excess of $600,000.

Fire Cause Investigators have been notified and will seek to determine the cause of the fire.
