newsNews24 reports that two firefighters were injured after a fire broke out at a building in car scrap yard in Roodepoort on Wednesday morning.  

Emergency services spokesperson Nana Lindiwe Radebe said the firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation after they battled to extinguish the blaze.  Details of what caused the fire were still unknown and preliminary investigations aimed at establishing the cause were expected to be conducted, Radebe indicated.  She added that it had been difficult to extinguish the fire because there had been car parts in the yard, but everything was under control and that they were doing everything they could to prevent the blaze from flaring up again.  No one was in the building when the fire started at around 01:00.
