An 8-year-old boy burnt to death at an apartment building in Bellville a short while ago.

Several other people have also been injured after a fire broke out at a block of flats on Voortrekker Road.

It’s understood that two women, a man and a baby got injured during the incident.

Apparently, the women jumped from the third floor of the building.

One of them is in a critical condition with burns to 60% of her body, while the other is being treated for possible spinal cord injuries.
