(Video) Breaking News: Two burn to death

Tragedy struck at one of Forever Resorts' favourite holiday spots, Loskop Dam, when a log cabin burnt to the ground early Sunday morning.

Two people burnt to death inside the cabin. The cause of the fire has not been determined and investigations are ongoing.

The identities of the deceased cannot be released at this time. Both are from Gauteng, and booked in at the resort for the weekend. The entire cabin was gutted by the fire.

Resort management did not want to disclose any further information and said that they would comment after the investigations have been finalised. No damage to other units were reported.
