    Three, including a child, die house fire in Gqeberha

    Three people, including a child, died when their Gqeberha home was engulfed by flames early on Sunday morning while they were sleeping.

    THE THREE WERE TRAPPED INSIDE THE HOUSE

    Eastern Cape police said one of the occupants was woken up by her aunt screaming for help just after midnight.

    “As she approached her aunt’s room, she noticed smoke emanating from the room. The woman and three other occupants ran outside and called for help. The neighbours attempted to extinguish the fire but were unsuccessful,” said police said.

    POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE

    The cause of the fire is unknown, and a police inquest is underway.

    Earlier this month, a mother, father, and child, was burnt to death in a HORRIFIC accident in Kimberley.

    TWO VEHICLES COLLIDED HEAD-ON

    According to Emer-G-Med spokesperson Kyle van Reenen, the accident happened along Smidtsdrift Road.

    “Paramedics arrived on the scene at approximately 23h00 to find two light motor vehicles had collided head-on, along Smidtsdrift Road,” he said.

    ONE OF THE VEHICLES BURST INTO FLAMES ON IMPACT

    Van Reenen said one of the vehicles burst into flames on impact, and sadly the occupants, a mother, father, and child, were burnt to death.

    “Two occupants from the second vehicle sustained moderate injuries and were treated and stabilized on the scene before being taken to a hospital by ambulance for further care,” Van Reenen said.

    He added that the South African Police Services were in attendance and will be investigating accordingly.
