Livid community members said the gang allegedly responsible for the fire remain untraceable.
Various organisations, such as Gift of the Givers and the Disaster Management Team, came on board to assist the aggrieved community.
Paseka Motsoeneng, popularly known as Prophet Mboro, also assisted with building materials and personally got his hands dirty when he helped reconstruct some of the collapsed shacks.
“We need counselling and a mobile clinic. My ARVs burnt in the shack, and I am sick," said one victim, who refused to be identified.
