Big Brother Africa Hotshots will not start on Sunday as planned due to a fire incident in the BBA house.The show was due to start on September 7 at the Sasani Studios in Johannesburg, South Africa but has now been suspended indefinitely.According to an M-Net press release
"M-Net and Endemol SA advise that due to a devastating fire at the Big Brother house on 2 September 2014, Big Brother Hotshots will not launch this Sunday (7 September) as scheduled. The cause of the fire at this stage is unknown and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so."At this stage M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements an alternative is not immediately available.Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue.
There were no casualties recorded from the incident.
