Fires wipes out entire Cape Town family

Three Cape Town family members died in a shack fire in the early hours of Friday.

Jermaine Carelse, spokesperson for the city fire and rescue service, said the incident happened in Tafelsig, Mitchells Plain.

“A family of three died in an early morning fire in Tafelsig on Friday,” Carelse said in statement.

“At 1.45am, the city’s fire and rescue service was alerted that a Wendy house in Tunnel Street was on fire and crews from Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha and Ottery fire stations were dispatched.”

Carelse said the family members had already died when firefighters arrived on the scene.

“On the scene, firefighters found two informal dwellings ablaze and the bodies of the father, mother and their daughter were discovered among the debris,” said Carelse. “The fire was extinguished at 3.08am and the scene was handed over to the SA Police Service.”
