Johannesburg -

An elderly man burnt to death in his shack at Oblate farm, North West police said on Saturday.

The 71-year-old man stayed alone in a shack, while his family stayed in the main house in the same yard, Sergeant Kealeboga Molale said.

“The man allegedly took his paraffin lamp and told his wife that he is going to sleep,” Molale said.

The neighbours saw the shack on fire on Friday around 6pm and alerted the man's family.

No foul play was suspected. - Sapa
