The Cabanas at Sun City has resumed with full operations after a recent fire in the hotel’s kitchen a week ago.
According to reports by IOL, Brett Hoppe, the general manager of Sun City, mentioned that the fire initially ignited at about 2.30pm.
The hotel’s food and beverage staff initially noticed a small fire, which they managed to extinguish. However, the fire had already extended through the extraction ventilation system, ultimately reaching the reception area and offices.
Fortunately, there were no injuries reported during this incident.
Hoppe told IOL: “Nobody was injured and guest accommodation is unaffected, but arrangements are being made for Cabanas guests to use the nearby Sun City hotel’s dining area.”
Hoppe also commented on the swift recovery: “Our maintenance team has been working around the clock and by mid-October all signs of the fire should be gone. We are extremely grateful that the fire looked worse than it was and that there were no injuries.
“This is all thanks to the quick action of our fire and rescue services who contained the fire to a small section of the kitchen and our reception area.”
With the hotel fully operational once again, guests can now enjoy their stay at Sun City without any disruptions, demonstrating the resilience and commitment to guest safety exhibited by the hotel’s management and staff.
