House fire with injuries in Montana

Update 2018-06-27 12h00:
The patient with serious burns was airlifted from Netcare 911 Montana Hospital to Netcare 911 Milpark Hospital. He has been under sedation due to damage to his trachea (he breathed the flames/heat) but experienced no damage to his lungs, as per reports. The sedation is to prevent his trachea from swelling and causing respiratory issues.
The second patient was treated at Netcare 911 Montana Hospital and at the time of this update was discharged and is recuperating at home.
We wish them and their families a speedy recovery from their injuries and emotional trauma.

2018-06-24 17h00:
We responded to a call for help at 15:23 for a house fire. We activated City of Tshwane Fire Brigade and our volunteers.

En route updates were received that the fire was put out, but with injuries. We activated ambulance services and one of our in-house paramedics responded from Kameeldrift.
One patient's risk assessment warranted taking both patients in his vehicle to the hospital's trauma unit before the ambulances arrived.

We thank and commend our volunteers, Sinoville Community Policing Forum, Fire Brigade Wonderboom Station, the 2 patients that put the fire out and everyone else involved.
Small actions like indicating which entrances and turns to take are a massive help.
