At least 52 people have died after a fire broke out in a block of flats in Johannesburg, BBC reported.
More than 40 others have sustained injuries in the blaze.
What sparked the blaze at the five-story building in the city centre is yet to ascertained, Johannesburg authorities said.
“Firefighters had been able to bring out some of the occupants,” BBC quoted a spokesman for the emergency services, Robert Mulaudzi, as saying.
He said the fire had gutted the building, and that the search for other victims was continuing.
A video posted to the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, by Mr Mulaudzi showed fire trucks and ambulances outside the building with burnt out windows. (With inputs from Agencies)
