Officials at the Struisbult Care Centre in Springs are having trouble identifying six of the 12 people who died in a fire in the facility yesterday morning.
Gauteng Health MEC Ntombi Megwe says the identification process will take some time as all the patient records were lost in the blaze.
At least 27 other people were injured after a fire broke out at the centre.
The exact cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, Ekurhuleni emergency services say the Centre was meant to have a fire safety check this month.
