Toddler dies in Cape Town house fire
Cape Town - A toddler died in a house fire in Ravensmead on Sunday, Cape Town disaster risk management said.
"Four adults were transported to Tygerberg Hospital by ambulances for serious burn wounds," spokesperson Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said. An 18-month-old girl died in the fire.
The fire, alleged caused by a candle that fell over, broke out just after midnight.
"The fire severely damaged the formal house. The City’s building inspectorate declared the dwelling structurally unsafe. It was established that there are numerous social issues at the household."
The City’s disaster response teams and social workers would reassess the living conditions on Monday and to arrange for the provision of humanitarian and social relief aid.
