Johannesburg Emergency Management Services spokesperson, Robert Mulaudzi, told the Record at about 8.30am that traffic was ‘back to normal’.
The fire impacted traffic negatively from early this morning and Metro Police had to redirect traffic down Westlake Road after the road was closed for a while.
Two firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
