Fire at Stoney Point house

A house in Betty’s Bay was damaged and four cars destroyed during a fire that occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday 16 February.

According to Overstrand Fire Chief, Lester Smith, fire fighters responded to the call at about 05:40. “Damage was sustained to the deck of the house and some rooms downstairs and vehicles also burned.”

A security guard that was in the vicinity says the fire started when one of the vehicles that was parked outside the house, caught fire. The guard says he suspects criminals set the car on fire in order to lure people out of the house and then gain entry to the property.

Warrant Officer Martin Mostert could however not confirm this. “The incident is being investigated and a case of arson has been opened.”

Smith adds that it took the fire fighters over an hour to extinguish the fire and declare the scene safe. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
