The bodies were burnt beyond recognition.
Two people have been killed in a shack fire in Dan Pienaar Drive in the Eikenhof area in the south of Johannesburg, paramedics said on Sunday.
ER24 paramedics were notified of the incident by the Midvaal fire department, ER24 spokeswoman Annine Siddall said.
Paramedics arrived at the scene at about 9.15am and waited for the fire to be extinguished.
It could not be determined how long the shack had been on fire. Once it was safe to enter, ER24 paramedics found two bodies burnt beyond recognition. Local authorities attended the scene and would investigate, Siddall said.
