Two people killed in Eikenhof shack fire


Two people were burnt beyond recognition, after their shack caught fire at Eikenhof, South of Johannesburg this weekend.

Paramedics arrived at the scene as soon as they were alerted of the fire. However, there is nothing they could do before the fire was extinguished by rescue teams.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and waited for the fire to be extinguished. It could not be determined how long the shack had been on fire for,” said ER24 spokesperson Annine Siddall.

“Once it was safe to enter, ER24 paramedics found two bodies burnt beyond recognition,” added Siddall.

There is still no clarity on what started the fire.
