More Than Hundred People Left Homeless After Multiple Shacks Destroyed By Fire In Johannesburg

More than a hundred people have been left homeless after multiple shacks were destroyed in a blaze in Johannesburg on Monday morning.

Johannesburg Emergency Management Services spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi said firefighters were called to the Kathrada Park informal settlement at around 04:00.

The informal settlement is situated between Claremont and Newclare, west of Johannesburg.

"The fire was caused by an unattended candle. One shack caught fire and then it spread to the rest of the shacks."

No injuries had been reported.
