Johannesburg - A couple burnt to death when their shack caught fire at Ha-Mutsha village near Thohoyandou on Thursday, Limpopo police said.

Warrant Officer Solly Mokhola said neighbours saw the shack on fire around 03:00.

Rescuers were called. When the fire was extinguished, a 37-year-old-man and a 37-year-old woman were found dead inside the shack.

Police suspect the fire might be the result of a suicide pact.

"We hope our investigation will reveal further details," said Mokhola.
