Eyewitnesses to the blaze claim that the nearest fire station responded late, and they were told no fire engines were available to attend to the call.

But Emergency Medical Services spokesperson, Nana Radebe has denied this telling EWN that the nearest fire station in Berea, Johannesburg responded to the call and were on the scene within 17 minutes of being called.

"With regards to claims that they waited for an hour, we want to investigate what number they (the eye witnesses) called and whether they called the right number for emergency service," Nana added to Metro FM's Mo Flava.

C- Live is still recovering in hospital, while police are currently investigating the possibility of arson.
