Four people have lost their lives in three separate shack fires across the city.

All three shack fires occurred last night.

In Site B, Khayelitsha one man died and in Zola Asanda Village near Strand it was reported that another man died.

Meanwhile in Bloekoms Bos, situated between Kraafontien and Kuilsriver, a couple died when their shack reportedly set alight, causing another two shack dwellers also to burn down. No injuries have been reported.

The City’s Disaster Risk Management Spokesperson Wilfread Solomons says, “We appeal to all people who are residing in informal shacks to take the necessary precautions when making use of open flames. He urged that they be not left unattended”.
