VIDEO: Well-known Summit restaurant at Menlyn, Pretoria gutted by fire

An inferno broke out at the Summit restaurant in Menlyn, Pretoria east, and destroyed parts of the upmarket rendezvous.

Speaking to the publication, deputy chief of the Tshwane Emergency Services, Thabo Charles Mabaso said firefighters rushed to the scene in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

“The fire at the Summit restaurant was reported to the Tshwane Emergency Services Department at around 4 a.m. this morning. Firefighters arrived on the scene to find parts of the second floor, where the music is played and where the sound is stored, on fire,” he said.

“The bottom part, where the restaurant is, as well as the kitchen, were not on fire and were not affected in any way. Firefighters managed to extinguish the fire on the second floor.”

Mabaso said the rooftop area of the business was not affected by the fire.

“No damage was suffered at the rooftop part. It is not known at the moment what caused the fire on the part of the restaurant,” he said.

According to the Tshwane Emergency Services, no injuries were recorded at the scene, as the popular rendezvous was closed when the fire broke out.

“Fortunately, there were no injuries or fatalities because at the time, the restaurant was not operational,” said Mabaso.
