The cause of the shack fire that took place in KTC Nyanga in the early hours of Tuesday morning, killing four and leaving almost 500 people homeless- is still unknown.

However a newspaper reports that a resident- who left beer brewing unattended on open flames overnight- is suspected of having caused the fire that swept through the informal settlement.

“Following the fire yesterday (Tuesday) Disaster Management supplied the necessary disaster relief to the victims. Building material will be provided to the people to re-erect their structures,” says Disaster Risk Managemnet’s Wilfred Solomons.

He adds that majority of the people did not sleep in the community hall provided for emergency shelter. “They were living with family and friends to protect their personal belongings”.

The police have opened an inquest docket into the matter.
