Tshwane , Plasticview Informal Settlement

Over 250 people have been left homeless after a devastating fire broke out at the Plastic View informal settlement in the City of Tshwane. The incident occurred on Saturday morning and resulted in the destruction of 45 shacks, leaving many families without shelter and personal belongings.

The City of Tshwane’s Emergency Services Department responded promptly to the emergency, treating one individual for smoke inhalation and moderate injuries. Three others received treatment on the scene for minor injuries but declined transport to a medical facility.

In the aftermath of the fire, the Tshwane Emergency Services Department will be launching public awareness campaigns at the informal settlement to educate residents on fire safety and disaster risk reduction. They remind residents to use paraffin stoves with caution, and to never leave open fires unattended. Additionally, overloading electrical plugs with appliances and illegal electrical connections are highly dangerous and could result in emergency incidents.

Efforts are currently underway to provide relief to the affected individuals and families, with the Tshwane Emergency Services Department working in collaboration with the city’s Community and Social Development Department to coordinate relief efforts.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, highlighting the importance of fire safety measures and regular education in informal settlements to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
