Approximately 400 people have been left destitute after a fire destroyed approximately 150 shacks inside the old icecream factory. They are now left without a roof over their heads in Alexandra in Johannesburg.The blaze spread through a condemned building early on Friday morning while hundreds of people were sleeping. Some people said the building had been their home for more than 10 years.
