About 500 shacks have been affected by a fire that broke out in Alexandra, Johannesburg, on Thursday afternoon.
An eyewitness told eNCA that the fire started after someone took revenge for an attack on Wednesday.
“Today around 2pm friends to [sic] those guys who were fighting yesterday [Wednesday], came here to pay [sic] a revenge and then they apparently burnt one shack. Unfortunately, it affected all the shacks around here.”
The fire is on the corner of London Road and 18th Avenue. No deaths have been reported.
Residents were carrying buckets of water to battle the blaze. The eyewitness said when fire engines arrived there was no water.
