A fire broke out at Nestle’s Cremora manufacturing factory in Potchefstroom in the North West on Friday.

The flame had sparked in the factory’s electrical control room, said Nestle spokeswoman Motshidisi Mokwena.

“There were no injuries sustained and all employees were evacuated and accounted for,” she said.

The extent of the damage would only be established after the investigation and clean-up efforts on Saturday.
