Fire fatalities across Cape Town have decreased by nearly thirty percent since last year. City officials say this is despite an increase in the number of structures gutted by fires in informal settlements. It attributed the improved statistic to increased resources and awareness within communities. The city says there been a 1,4 percent decrease in the total number of informal settlement fires. Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith says fires spread rapidly in informal settements due to closely built structures and fire trucks battling to gain access. He says there’s been an increase of nearly nine-percent in vegetation fires. The latest fire statistics were announced in Gugulethu where the local fire station was recently damaged in a fire.
