Phalaborwa veldfire leaves trail of devastation

Some of the people whose houses were gutted by a runaway veld fire in Phalaborwa are saddened by the loss of their properties. Twelve houses and a guest house were gutted by the fire on Saturday.

It is believed that the veld fire was sparked by high temperatures and spread to nearby houses.

One of the owners, doctor Nkhensani Mabunda says her family lost everything in the fire.

She says the Ba-Phalaborwa Local and Mopani District municipalities have arranged temporary accommodation for them.

“We got assistance from the local municipality. They came in physically; the executive mayor Pule Shayi and mayor Miriam Malatji, so they came to show their support and support in a way of informing us of the arrangements they have made for a place for us to sleep for tonight, including a breakfast, lunch and dinner and then we also had good neighbours who managed to come in with the help.”
