Grassy Park Police has confirmed that a 29-year-old mother was arrested on charges of child neglect. 

This is after her 18-month-old son burnt to death in a fire in Phumlani Village informal settlement on Sunday night. 

It has been reported that the 18-month-old boy was blind. 

Captain FC van Wyk said the arrest follows the discovery of the body of the baby in a shack after it caught fire.  It is believed the mother of the child was at home at the time of the fatal incident. 

Van Wyk said the cause of the fire that led to the death of the child is being investigated and the mother is still in custody.
