Cape Town Disaster Risk Management on Saturday said about 150 people were left destitute following several shack fires over the past few days.

There were five separate fires in Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Philippi, Atlantis and Muizenberg.

Disaster Risk Management's Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said, “Backyard dwellers’ houses caught alight in Kalkfontein and it also resulted in formal houses being affected by the fire.”
