Another Cape Town informal settlement goes up in flames

At least fifty more Cape Town families have been left homeless following a fire in the Ocean View area Thursday morning. About 50 shacks burnt down in the Masiphumele informal settlement, while firefighters also had their hands full with a brush fire at nearby Slangkop. According to Cape Town Disaster Management spokesperson Johan Minnie, no injuries or fatalities have been reported. Minnie said that residents affected by the blaze are receiving assistance. There has been a spate of fires in the Cape in the last week, with strong winds fanning the blazes that have left hundreds of people homeless over the festive season
