300 left homeless after Cape Town fires

Sapa | 24 November, 2012 13:28

About 300 people have been left homeless after their shacks caught fire in areas across the Western Cape on Saturday, the City's disaster risk management centre said.

Spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said fires at Seawinds, Athlone and Langa and Phillipi destroyed shacks and interrupted power supply on Saturday morning.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fires was not immediately known, but authorities were investigating, said Solomons-Johannes.
