The blaze has since been extinguished and the cause of the fire is unknown at this stage.

Ward councillor, Mandy Marr, says this has been the second fire in Overcome Heights in a space of a week. She appealed to the public to assist with donations.

 "We are on site of the terrible fire that happened this morning [Sunday]. Gift of the Givers has been here already and we have alerted the disaster management. The fire guys are still busy with their work. We [would] just like to appeal for any donations (clothing, any material, household goods, old furniture, etc.) can take it to Living Hope in in Drury Road, Vrygrond.’’
