Four others have been displaced after a blaze gutted dwellings in the Samora Machel informal settlement.
City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services spokesperson Theo Layne says the affected families are being assisted.
"We responded to the Samora Machel informal settlement where there were two structures that were involved in a fire and were completely destroyed, leaving three people with fatal injuries."
He says the cause of the fire is undetermined at this stage.
