Use water sparingly during power outage

A fire at the substation on Pretoria Road.

A fire at a Rynfield substation has left most of Benoni without electricity this morning.

“The DA has warned residents of Crystal Park, Northmead and Farrarmere to use water sparingly as the outage will have affected the pump at the reservoir which will not be able to refill until the power is restored,” said Ward 28 Clr Mary Goby.

Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality spokesperson Themba Gadebe could not say when electricity would be restored, but said the matter is being investigated.
