Lost and destruction in lunch-hour shack fire

Three shacks were totally destroyed in a shack fire in 12th Avenue, Kuisebmond yesterday around lunch time. Two more adjacent shacks suffered substantial water- and smoke damage.
According to the owner of one of the shacks that were destroyed, Festus Shipangela, they have no idea how the fire may have started. He suspects electricity as the cause though.
“We do not know what could have caused the fire because it started in one of the shacks belonging to a woman who has not even been here for days. She is visiting relatives at the North.”
There were no injuries reported and some of the shack fire victims managed to rescue some of their belongings.
