Fire rips through Mondesa – 11 shacks and 3 houses

A total of eleven shacks and three houses were destroyed by a devastating fire on Wednesday afternoon in Swakopmund’s Mondesa suburb (extension 8). No injuries were reported, but the affected home owners lost everything.
According to deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, police regional crime investigations coordinator for Erongo, the cause of the fire is yet to be determined. “Eleven ghettos and three neighbouring houses were destroyed by the fire while most of the owners were at work,” he explained.
It is suspected, though the fire started in a ghetto located at Erf no. 3722. It rapidly spread to neighbouring ghettos on erf no. 3709 and 3721.
