Authorities expect that the fires raging around Somerset West could take up to three more days before it is extinguish.

The City of Cape Town Fire Management says helicopters could not be used to water-bomb the area, as dense smoke hindered the pilots’ view.

The veld fire also moved back over the mountain into the Grabouw area yesterday, putting more pressure on already exhausted fire-fighters.
