Kennedy Road Fire Under Investigation
 
The Municipality is investigating a fire that has destroyed more than 80 shacks on Kennedy Road Informal Settlement this morning, Tuesday, 26/12/17.
 
At this stage, it is still unclear what has sparked the blaze as most residents whose shacks were destroyed by fire were away. However, there was a report from a community member that fire started from one of the shacks that was unoccupied and no person was injured.
 
The Municipality’s Disaster Management Unit officials will return to the area tomorrow morning to conduct a proper assessment with a hope that most of the owners would have returned from holiday.
