513 people have been displaced when a fire ripped through the Mangologolo informal settlement near Denver.

On Saturday more than 230 shacks were burnt down and 513 people were left homeless.

The city’s disaster management and non-governmental organisations responded immediately by providing blankets.

Three major retail stores were also offering food and promised to provide building materials.

The cause of the fire is still not known.

Spokesperson Percy Morokane said people who wanted to help by donations can call the 24-hour number 011-375-5920.
