Late night fire apparently leads to devastating inferno
About 30 people are left homeless after the devastating fire.
APPROXIMATELY 30 people from eight households in the Beverly Hills squatter camp in Onverwacht Street in the Strand were left homeless after a fire.
The incident took place on Wednesday around 02:30. The cause of the fire could not yet be determined.
However, people claim that a young boy made a fire at night and this could have caused the fire.
Caliban Botha, chairperson of the community committee, says the people lost everything in the fire.
He says when he woke up, the flames were on him.
Botha says he has lived in this area for 20 years.
He is supposed to move to the new Allan Boesak Village where Hop houses are being built for them.
They were supposed to move into their new homes at the end of the month, but nothing has been built yet because there is a dispute with the people who live on the land.
Botha also says several children lost all their school clothes and books.
While the source was on the scene yesterday, the disaster management team of the City of Cape Town was also on the scene to assist the victims with building materials.
