Fire at Bellville police station under investigation

WESTERN CAPE Police crime scene experts are busy on the scene at Bellville SAPS where a fire broke out in the early hours of this morning. Damage to two administrative offices is being assessed at the police station after members saw smoke coming from a building at the back of the premises. The building is utilised by administrative personnel who were not inside at the time of the incident. No one was injured. We urge that the media to refrain from speculating on the motive at this sensitive stage of the investigation. Detectives are busy probing the circumstances. We need to give space for the investigation to take place.
