A fire-fighter was stoned in Philippi yesterday while attending to a shack fire in an informal settlement in the area.

Eighty shacks were destroyed and more than 300 people were left homeless.

Ian Schnetler from the City of Cape Town fire said there were about fifty individual units that were affected and residents tried to interfere with the fire-fighting operation.

The residents threw a brick at one of the fire-fighters and hit him which he sustained an injury in his lip.
