The blaze broke out on Thursday in their eZakheni home in B section. 8 month-old baby Enzo Mabaso and his two sisters 7 year-old Xolile and 10 year-old Angel, lost their lives.

Their 58 year-old grandmother Philiisiwe Hlubi died in hospital. Hlubi’s son, Mduduzi Mabaso, says their family home was reduced to ashes.

"Everything is gone. Nothing is left. Neighbours told us they saw a flame coming from the backroom but we were amazed because do not use that room", he said.

He says the children’s mother is not coping.

"My sister is not well. This is hard on her and for us as a family", Mabaso said.

A 12 year-old boy, who survived the fire, is in ICU.
