City of CT issues emergency housing kits for shack fire victims
The city says it has issued 1,300 emergency housing kits to residents who have been affected by shack fires.
The most recent informal settlement fires occurred in Egoli, Vygieskraal and Masiphumulele.
The housing kits consist of pine poles, roof sheets, a wooden door with hinges and a lock set, a wooden-framed window and nails.
The city's Benedicta van Minnen says: “We encourage people to be particularly careful this time of year.”
