Authorities are investigating the cause of a shack fire that killed a baby and two toddlers.


The fire broke out in the early hours of this morning in an informal settlement in Doornkop, Soweto.

Johannesburg EMS' Nana Radebe says the children were siblings.

"We found three children aged 11 months, three years and five years. They could not be saved," says Radebe.

Radebe says their parents were injured.

"They had burns and were taken to hospital in a stable condition. Fire safety investigations are still continuing," says Radebe.
