Cape Town - A 28-year-old man was killed in a fire at the KTC informal settlement near Nyanga in Cape Town on Saturday, said the city's disaster risk management centre.

Four shacks were destroyed in the blaze, spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said.

“Six people were left displaced.”

The people were given food parcels and building supplies.

“They are already rebuilding their shacks,” said Solomons-Johannes.

It was unclear what sparked the fire. - Sapa
