Overberg fire rages on

Cape fire-fighters are still battling to contain the Overberg fire that is raging out of control. Thousands of hectares of fynbos, vines and other farmlands have been destroyed in the Gans Bay/Bredasdorp area but it is still blazing in the Stanford district near Hermanus. But Working on Fire’s Val Charlton says the Wolseley/Ceres fire in the Boland has been contained and workers are busy mopping up. The Western Cape and national governments are expected to decide soon whether parts of the Boland and Overberg will be declared disaster areas. This will make available financial and other help after days of exhausting work protecting people and property.
