Two boys and a girl died in a fire during the early hours of Wednesday at Endlovini informal settlement in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

The city’s fire and rescue service was notified about the blaze shortly after midnight.

“Crews from Lansdowne, Mfuleni, Khayelitsha and Strand responded to the scene, which completely destroyed the structure, leaving about 14 people displaced,” said fire and rescue spokesperson Jermaine Carelse.
