Two people have been killed in a fire that destroyed dozens of shacks in Alexandra on Saturday night.
A one-year old toddler and a 30-year-old man were burnt beyond recognition in the devastating fire.
Johannesburg Emergency Management Services spokesman Robert Mulaudzi says an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.
“The multiple shack fire incident happened at 8th Avenue London road around 22h00, two people lost their lives. We encourage our residents to be careful when using heating appliances that may cause fire at home.”
Police investigation continues.
