Johannesburg - As clean up operations continue into a massive fire in Alexandra that left many residents displaced, new details have emerged into the cause of the devastating blaze.
The fire broke out on Thursday evening at the Greenville informal settlement reportedly after a fight broke out between residents.
No injuries or fatalities have been reported at this stage.
An Alex resident, in a call to 702, revealed that a love triangle gone wrong was to blame for the blaze that left hundreds of shacks affected.
According to the caller, there was a dispute that resulted in one of those involved "taking revenge" and setting his rival's shack on fire, resulting in the widespread fire.
