CAPE TOWN - It's not yet clear what caused a fire a food packaging factory in Brackenfell.

Firefighters were dispatched to the Elzea Foods Packaging warehouse last night but only managed to completely douse the blaze in the early hours of this morning.

No injuries have been reported.

The city's fire and rescue service's Liezl Moodie said, "Last night we had eight vehicles for three firefighters. The fire was contained and brought under control."

Last week, in Atlantis a fire gutted the AMC cookware factory and damaged a section of neighbouring business.

Investigations are underway to determine the cause of the blaze.
