Photographer and former TV producer at the DCC, Andreas Mattios says the fire is a hard pill to swallow. Speaking to East Coast Newswatch from the scene, he’s likened the inferno to the collapse of the twin towers.

“The closest comparison I can make to what I am looking at right in front of me right now – is it looks lie the twin towers have come down all over again. I am looking at a decimated Jesus Dome where the wrangled damage to the infrastructure has brought the aluminium roof crashing to the ground.

“It’s basically destroyed the whole infrastructure inside the dome, right up to the back where my old offices  used to be – the TV ministry that we started in 2004. It’s just heart-wrenching to see how this place has just come down,” Mathios said.
