A fire at the Brakfontein substation in Centurion in Gauteng has left several suburbs in the area without power.

Amberfield, Rooihuiskraal, Heuweloord, Hennopspark and Wierda Park have been without electricity since Friday night.

The City of Tshwane says the damage is extensive and that it doesn’t expect the power to be restored soon.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
