Cape Town fire claims two lives
A baby and a toddler burned to death in a fire at Kensington in Cape Town on Friday morning. Emergency services say a two-year-old boy and his one-year-old sister died in the blaze that broke out in their home before daybreak. A woman is being treated in hospital for smoke inhalation. The fire service’s Theo Lane said they battled for about an hour to extinguish the fire but the children were already dead when they arrived on the scene. The cause of the tragedy is being investigated.
