Three of the well-known colourful bathing boxes at St James Beach at Muizenberg along the False Bay coastline have been gutted and two others partially damaged by the fire.
A spokesperson for the City, Wayne Dyason, says law enforcement officials came upon the blaze just after midnight.
He says the
fire department has extinguished the flames shortly afterwards before more of the iconic and picturesque small wooden houses could be damaged.
Dyason says the cause of the fire is unknown at this stage."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/117337877_3421430974575929_179420551400338114_o.jpg?_nc_cat=108&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=0EcYwjkayhsAX9A7R9D&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=b9927209da84de08cd21de23c5ff8099&oe=5F559955","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/117397756_3421431061242587_6860209011510454370_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=ZI9b4T-hGiMAX-rl9LK&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=80d4912e0a4938d2d261d72773cf393f&oe=5F5427D6"
