Police are investigating the death of two children who burnt to death in a house fire in Musina in Limpopo.

Their mother had left her three-year-old boy and 20-month-old girl in the house to cook in one of the neighbours’ houses.

“While she was busy there, she heard screams from the next door neighbours, when she rushed out, she saw the house where the kids were sleeping covered in fire,” Limpopo police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe says.

An inquest docket has been opened and the mother is currently with the police as investigations continue.

The mother is still with the police as the investigation continues.
