SAPA reported that a fire has caused extensive damage at ArcelorMittal's steel making plant in Vanderbiljpark, forcing it to shut down

ArcelorMittal SA CEO Ms Nonkululeko Nyembezi-Heita said all employees were evacuated unharmed during the fire on Saturday.

She said “A comprehensive assessment is underway, but it is too early to quantify the exact production shortfall and economic impact.”

The company would not be in a position to completely fulfil its orders and force majeure would be issued to the customers and suppliers affected.

She said “The company will work with customers to assess their requirements and make every effort to source their needs from various ArcelorMittal Group plants.”
