- in World News


A devastating fire gutted the entirety of the Edith Benson Children’s Home in Durban on Tuesday night – but the children are safe.

Firefighters and paramedics responded to the fire at the home, which houses more than 50 babies.

Rescue Care’s Garrith Jamieson said there were no casualties, but that one person was treated for smoke inhalation. The children were moved to safety at the nearby Sherwood Hall.

“Fifty-seven children, aged between 3 months and 5 years, escaped injury,” he said.

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Social Development said it would send a team of senior social workers to ensure that children were housed safely.

“There are no casualties. The team of social workers will ensure that they are moved to other facilities,[tooltip id=”4500c2f113202943ff1ae30d00c9d4ac”] [/tooltip]” said departmental spokesperson Ncumisa Ndelu.
