The center of legislative power in South Africa is on fire. A major fire broke out on Sunday morning at the seat of Parliament in Cape Town.

“The roof has caught fire and the National Assembly building is also on fire,” said a spokesperson for the city’s emergency services, who asked for reinforcements on the spot. “The fire is not under control and cracks in the walls of the building have been reported,” he added.

A thick column of smoke

The fire which spreads in the floors broke out around 5:30 am (4:30 am in France). By early morning, flames and a thick column of smoke were visible above the building.
