POLICE FOLLOWING ALL LEADS ON CAPE FIRE

Police in the Western Cape say they are following up all the leads to get to the bottom of what happened in Wupperthal.

Dozens of homes and other structures were gutted on Sunday as a blaze tore through the community.

The tiny community is still reeling after a fire ripped through the village, destroying half of the historical village including the parsonage, shops and 53 homes.

At least 200 people are homeless.
