House fire in Spring Valley to stay a secret

An informal house in Spring Valley burned down to the ground and no one, except a little boy will ever know exactly what happened.

On Monday, August 6, a fire started in the Spring Valley informal settlement and a house was completely destroyed.

“We don’t know what happened, no one does, only the little boy that was playing near the house,” said a bystander as he watched the house go up in flames.

It was too late to put out the fire

WITBANK NEWS attempted to ask the little boy if he knows what happened or if he saw what happened and he didn’t answer, instead he just stared towards the house as if seeking for answers.

After a few minutes an elder lady approached the WITBANK NEWS and she sadly explained that the boy cannot speak because he is deaf. This is a secret that the little boy is sure to keep.

Fire fighters rushed to the scene and started to kill the fire. The family that lives in the house was at work at the time of the fire and therefore couldn’t give a comment.

“Luckily there was no one in the house,” said another bystander on scene.

The entire house burned down and everything inside the house was completely destroyed.

The truth about this fire will forever stay a secret.
