Fire destroys several houses in Phalaborwa

According to reports, a major fire has already ravaged at least 20 houses in the Limpopo town.

What started as a veldfire has reached a blaze that, according to reports, has swept through the town of Phalaborwa.

According to Tzaneen Voice, an unconfirmed number of people have been injured.
