A fire has damaged the Park's Shop at Storms River Mouth in the Tsitsikamma section of the Garden Route National Park.
SANParks spokesperson, Nandi Mgwadlamba, says the fire that broke out last night was contained, preventing it from spreading to surrounding vegetation and other structures.
She however says the park is still
open: "Teams were deployed very quickly and they were on site and hence they could contain the fire to just the Park's Shop, it didn't move to accommodation and other activities, which means that the activities were unaffected, the restaurant unaffected, the other part of the Park's Shop, which is close to the restaurant unaffected."
