The Burgersfort SAPS are investigating an arson case; this comes after a truck was torched on the R555 last Friday. The truck belongs to one of the companies operating in the Steelpoort mines. The cause of the fire is not known at this juncture.
Those who were first on the scene alleged that the truck might have been petrol bombed.
“We suspect it was petrol bombed, the truck was empty and the driver escaped unharmed,” said the eye witnesses.
Fire fighters arrived on time to douse off some parts of the truck.
The Burgersfort SAPS pleaded with those who have information on the incident to contact the station on 013 231 0201.
