School buildings at Woodridge College in Nelson Mandela Bay were engulfed in flames this afternoon following a long battle by emergency services to keep the flames at bay.
This is according to Woodridge director of marketing, Anthony de Villiers.
He said due to the fire around the Woodridge campus, all students and residence staff were evacuated earlier today from the campus and are all safe.
“The fire fighters were able to keep the fire at bay for a long time but when the wind changed direction the fire department called for all volunteers to move away. They are controlling the situation as best they can,” he said.
Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality spokesman Mthubanzi Mniki said the Woodridge College reception and music halls are on fire.
