The body of a four-year-old boy was found on Friday night after a fire broke out in a house in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town.
Two more people were injured in the fire.
Firefighters were called to Sicily Street in Portlands at 7:40 p.m.
Jermaine Carelse, spokesperson for the fire and rescue services, says the house was completely engulfed in flames. By the time the fire department arrived, everyone except the boy was already outside the home.
The fire was extinguished by 20:30. The child’s body was found in the living room.
The scene was then handed over to police for further investigation.
