A man has been killed and more than 250 people left homeless following fires in two Cape Town informal settlements.

Disaster Management’s Wilfred Solomons-Johannes says a 29 year old man was burnt beyond recognition when a fire swept through the Wallacedene informal settlement near Kraaifontein.

In the second incident, 200 people were left homeless at Site B in Khayelitsha, when 60 dwellings were gutted.

Disaster Management officials are assisting with relief aid.
