In the early hours of this morning emergency services responded to a fire in Protea Park, Atlantis whereby a 34-year-old woman died. 

Disaster Risk Management Spokesperson Wilfred Solomons Johannes said a father and a 3-year-old child were taken to hospital for further treatment. 

Solomons said the woman died due to the burns she had sustained and she burnt beyond recognition. 

Wilfred Solomons Johannes said the circumstances leading to the preceding of the fire is unclear at this stage and the city of Cape Town will probe an investigation.

Meanwhile another fire occurred in Manenberg whereby three back dwellings caught alight leaving 12 people displaced.  Nobody sustained any injuries.

Solomon Johannes said it is suspected that both fires were caused by an electrical fault that ignited and resulted in the fire.
