Johannesburg EMS Robert Mulaudzi said: "We need to make sure that we look after all heating devices.

"We know some of our residents in informal settlements use imbawula and paraffin stoves and candles which make them vulnerable...other residents use beer bottles as candle holders.

"We say they look after them so that we prevent fire incidents which might occur over this weekend."
