“At the moment, the fire fighters are battling with the blaze,” spokesman Robert Mulaudzi said.

One employee had injured his leg while running out of the burning building, he said

He had arrived at the factory and entered the building to try to extinguish the fire and failed. He was injured on his way out of the building and was treated on the scene.

The fire started around 5am, Mulaudzi said.

“It is a very big fire, we are trying not to let it spread to the other factories. It is in a factory park.”
