CAPE TOWN - Two children have been killed in a fire in Delft in Cape Town.

The boys, aged five and six, died in a blaze that gutted two backyard dwellings overnight.

The city's Wilfred Solomons-Johannes says, "The City of Cape Town has since provided relief aid to these people and we will support them with funeral arrangements."

Meanwhile, police are investigating after a 14-year-old Mitchells Plain boy was killed while re-enacting a science experiment at home.

The teenager blew himself up on Thursday while trying to replicate the experiment using a plastic bottle, a lighter and a can of deodorant.
