City spokeswoman Thobeka Mafumbatha said the fire department reacted swiftly to the emergency but could not save the family.

“The fire department worked tirelessly in putting out the fire but the family could not be saved,”: she said.

The 3.30am blaze at the family’s home in Larch Road situated at ‘The Village’ a small community between Mountain Rise and Manor, killed five members of the Munjra family. The family is survived by their eldest daughter who lives in Johannesburg.
