There were shacks built in the ground floor of the building.

"We don't have any casualties, fortunately, Joburg EMS were able to respond quickly enough so they were able to evacuate the residents that were inside the building and no injuries were reported," Khumalo said.

The fire has been extinguished, according to Khumalo.
