Fire fighters still working hard to control the blaze

By Yamkela Xhaso

Fire fighters have been kept busy over the past few weeks, as the hot weather and windy conditions have lead to the increase of fires.

City of Cape Town Chief fire Officer Ian Schnetler said early in the morning at about 1 am, the fire had spread to Kroonhoek Farm but fire services there prevented any properties from damage.

Schnetler said the current situation was that they were providing relief to fire victims and the fire spread toward the mountain in Grabouw.

“And we have ground crews and helicopter assisting the ground crews.”

At the time the fires were well contained if the weather holds up like it is.
