Almost 100 people have been left home less after two fires ripped through Khayelitsha informal settlement on the Cape Flats.
According to reports most of the 79 people whose shacks were destroyed on Monday managed to escape the first fire unharmed but one man was hospitalised with severe burns in the second blaze.
City Disaster Management division spokesperson Wilfred Solomons said that two shacks had been destroyed in the second blaze and that the city has provided clothing, blankets, food parcels and building materials.
