Another fire breaks out at Phola Park leaving more people homeless

Another fire broke out in the section of Philippi's Phola Park Township in Cape Town on Thursday afternoon, leaving more people homeless, just a few days after over 300 homes were burnt and over 1000 people were left homeless.

The cause of the fires is not yet clear, however, there was scheduled load shedding between 12pm and 2pm, and as soon as power was restored, it is believed many shacks caught alight.

Firefighters managed to contain the blaze within two hours. The city’s fire and rescue services’ spokesperson, Jermaine Carelse said fire fighters battles strong winds.

Gift of the Givers has been assisting these displaced families by distributing hot meals, water, blankets and other essentials.
