Booysens Informal Settlement residents who lost their homes to a fire on Friday have been moved to a local community centre.

The City of Johannesburg has also provided them with food parcels, hygiene packs and others resources.

Mayor Geoff Makhubo visited the area on Sunday.

He says 80% of the community members are migrants.

Makhubo says they will be rehabilitating the infrastructure in the area and begin de-densifying the area.

More than 700 shacks were lost in the fire.

No injuries or deaths have been reported.
