Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said the cause of the fire was unknown and that investigations had just begun. Nobody was injured.
DA Police Portfolio Committee member Dianne Kohler Barnard tried conducting her own investigation into the incident.
“Conflicting stories are being told. The police at first said a case of arson had been registered, and a source said it seemed there was no foul play. This means a SAPS station has simply burnt itself,” she said.
She called for someone to be held accountable for the damage to police infrastructure.
