Residents said the fire destroyed everything in less than 20 minutes.
The affected families will be housed at a local hall in Waterloo until their flats are repaired.
The ward councillor, Geoff Pullan, told the Weekly that the victims were housed in a marquee in the area temporarily.

Division Commander for Umhlanga Fire Station Jay Kanniappen said the fire crew responded to the call-out in Hammonds Farm.

He said that his crew managed to extinguish the fire before it could spread to other homes.

“The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and no one was injured,” Kanniappen said.
