Harare police attended to a scene where a house burnt down at Hempe Street in Makhaza, Khayelitsha, just after midnight this morning.

Four people died on the scene as they were unable to get out of the house.
"This included three females aged 8, 12 and 25 and one male aged 17," says police constable Siphokazi Mawisa.

A 25-year-old woman allegedly had an argument with her boyfriend who threatened to harm them. He was later seen with petrol by community members and it is believed that he started the fire.

"We have registered an arson case-docket for investigation and they have launched a search for the suspect who is still at large," says Mawisa

Anyone who can assist with the whereabouts of the suspect can contact Harare SAPS on 021 363 9020 or Crime Stop 08600 10111.
