The City of Cape Town and the Red Ants on Tuesday pulled down structures erected on the fire site. An agreement was reached with community leaders to allow the area to be cleared.

Eric Maqam, a community leader, said residents were told that the area was being cleared because the city wanted to make sure "there is enough space".
