A two-year-old boy has died in a fire after the family shack was gutted during the early hours of this morning in Kingstown informal settlement in Despatch, Gqeberha, South Africa.
The smell of smoke and fire allegedly woke up the owner of the shack around 00:15.
He ran out of the shack for help and was assisted by community members in saving his family.
Seven people were aided, but when the shack was completely consumed by fire, they realized that one child was still missing.
Adriaan Leeuskieter, a young boy, was killed in the fire. The fire is believed to have been started by a candle.
It is also reported that police are investigating the incident.
