The father of the deceased Seth Somayi told journalists that around 10:00 he told his wife to pack so they also go home to sleep.

“In the process of parking the things, I noticed that there was some going on where we sleep. I ran towards home and was shocked to see my house in flames. It was too late to save my children as they were burnt to death,” he recounted crying uncontrollably.

Eyewitnesses say the poorly spaced out nature of the place made it very difficult for officers of the Fire Service to have their way and douse the fire.
