Johannesburg - A 4-year-old boy was killed in a house fire in Theresa Park, Pretoria, on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.

The fire started while the child was alone in the house in the early hours of the morning, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.

The boy was alone because his father was taking his mother to work, he said.

The cause of the fire was not known.

Wicks said the child was burnt beyond recognition.

    What parent in their right mind would leave a 4 year old alone in a house? RIP little one!! The parents only have themselves to blame, idiots shouldn't be allowed to breed!
