He said a number of structures were destroyed and the fire was extinguished at 14:15 due to the swift action of the fire crews. "During clean up operations the body of a baby boy was found," said Carelse. The infant sustained fatal burn wounds. The scene was handed over to the police for further investigation. Further details were not immediately available.This follows a devastating fire in Strand on September 30 in which a man was found dead. In that fire, at least 88 were left homeless and 47 shacks burnt down, GroundUp reported.
