Cape Town has been hit by two shack fires, leaving about 250 citizens homeless.

The city’s Disaster Management Wilfred Solomons-Johannes says two children were injured in the fire in Woodstock.

The fire destroyed about 39 shacks.

The children have been rushed to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

Meanwhile in Site B, Khayelitsha, about 40 shacks were demolished to the ground, but no injuries were reported.

Officials are providing essentials such as food, blankets and building material to help people rebuild their structures.
