A crane that crashed in a South African suburb of Johannesburg has caused a fire that killed four people and destroyed dozens of homes.
The crane, called the Dombre-Fujilela, crashed into a residential neighbourhood on Saturday night.
The Dombrem are the main types of crane used in the construction industry in South Africa.
In a statement, the government said it was “deeply shocked and saddened” by the crash.
The three people killed in the accident were a man and a woman from the town of Mpumalanga, who were married and had three children, a local media report said.
The injured, including a boy, were taken to the hospital in the city.
The company responsible for the crane, Mpenglulang, said in a statement on its website: “The safety of the crane operator has been reviewed by the company, the fire brigade and the local fire department and is currently under investigation.”
The government said there were no reports of any injuries, but the area was heavily affected by the fire.
Rescue workers were seen removing debris from the wreckage, including the roof of the home, on Sunday.
