A toddler from Durban is lucky to be alive.
This comes after she was rescued from a blazing fire at the City Life building on Tuesday afternoon in South Africa.
City Life is located above a clothing shops on Smith Street.
According to a tweet by Nomsa Maseko, looters started a fire after looting everything from the shops on the ground floor.
â€śThey then set fire to the building, affecting apartments upstairs,â€ť said Nomsa.
She said the toddler was saved by neighbours who caught the little girl.
Another Twitter user, Jimmy Ramokgopa said: â€śSo they donâ€™t even think about the people inside the building who might die.â€ť
Meanwhile, scores of shack dwellers from a squatter camp in Northdale in Pietermaritzburg in the KZN midlands were left homeless.
SA Crime Watch also tweeted that in the KZN midlands residents have now burnt the local squatter camps.
