JOHANNESBURG – Alexandra residents are rebuilding their homes on Wednesday morning after a fire ripped through their shacks following a City Power pylon collapse.
Over a hundred families were affected and were moved to the Marlboro community hall to shelter overnight.
The blaze broke out when a City Power pylon collapsed yesterday, bringing live overhead cables down with it.
Joburg emergency services are back in the area this morning.
Spokesperson Nana Radebe: “By last night, a number of people could not be registered, so disaster management will be back on scene this morning to do a clear list of how many people are displaced. But most people are worried about their belongings, having left everything just there and worrying that some things might be stolen.”
