There was no place for the fire truck to connect to for water so the people ran back and forth with buckets of water to fill the truck's reservoir.

Facebook page Mzansi LIVE shared the inspiring clip showing the efforts of a community that came together to save a building. While the clip was heart-warming, it was also sad to see the lack of infrastructure in this community.

“When Africans use all their power, money, education, etc to fight each other... Progress/improvements remains impossible.”

Thabang Molapo said:

“Wise move for water relay... Remember this thing carries only 5000ltr of water.. If there's no fire hydrant on the street there's nothing this people can do.. It's either they use neighbors swimming pools or they must request for back up fire engine that will do water relay depending on the distance that it must take to get the water to the truck that will be busy fighting the fire.... Good job lovely community ”

Heading online, Siyanda Calvin Ntenga shared the heartfelt post.

"Before and after pictures of today’s SANTACO-KZN, Durban Central Region taxi owners clean up campaign. It was great seeing the community come out in numbers to join. Let's rebuild our beautiful South Africa!!!" he captioned the post.
