IMATU is deeply saddened to learn of the deaths of another two firefighters involved in fighting the fire at a government building in the Johannesburg CBD today. A total of 3 fire fighters have lost their lives in the line of duty and a number of others have been hospitalised.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families, friends and co-workers of the fire fighters who lost their lives in the line of duty. Our thoughts are with all of those still currently fighting the blaze.
IMATU is closely monitoring the unfolding events and will be able to comment further once feedback has been received from our members on the ground.
