Blaze Engulfs Woodchip Business in KwaZulu-Natal: Raging Fire in Richards Bay

Suspected High Temperatures Spark Devastating Fire

In a devastating incident, a fire of significant magnitude erupted on Saturday, posing a serious threat to one of the largest woodchip companies in KwaZulu-Natal.

Preliminary investigations point to soaring high temperatures as the potential cause of this raging blaze.

The fire’s point of origin was identified as the conveyor belt within the NCT Woodchip Mill, an essential facility for storing wooden chips.

Emergency Response and Rapid Escalation

The emergency response was swift, with the City of uMhlathuze dispatching its fire services upon receiving an urgent call regarding the fire incident near NCT.

NCT Woodchip Mill is situated adjacent to FOSCOR, a facility that handles wood-related materials. However, by the time emergency services arrived at the scene, the fire had already engulfed the wooden chip stockpiles, escalating the situation.

As the inferno continued to rage, the City’s fire department faced a daunting challenge.

They enlisted the assistance of various entities, including Mondi Fire Services, Transnet Fire Services, South 32, RBM, and several private companies.

Together, they launched a collective effort to combat the massive fire that threatened the woodchip business’s operations and the safety of the surrounding area.
