Dear Residents, as you have no doubt heard as well as some of us may have experienced, there have been a series of massive explosions in the Boksburg area.
These are due to a tanker carrying highly flammable Liquid Oxygen, having an accident involving a low bridge while delivering its cargo to a local hospital.
The liquid oxygen caught fire and the tanker exploded.
All services are on scene and the CPF has members on standby to assist the first responders, we are just awaiting the green light from the incident commander.
As more information becomes available we will share.
