  • Freakish fires terrorise family

    Mysterious fires that apparently ignite spontaneously have over the past two weeks destroyed the homes and belongings of a family in Hopewell near Thornville.

    The freakish fires have burned through the Mthembu family’s main house, two low-cost houses in the yard and another low-cost house belonging to the children, across the street from the main family home.

    Neighhbours, fire-fighters and managers from the Richmond municipality and uMgungundlovu district disaster management teams agreed that this was the first fire of its kind they have witnessed.

    They said they had seen the fire start spontaneously and burn through things that had been pulled from the house.

    "This kind of fire is not a normal fire. It is something that we have never seen before.”
