A farm worker, who sustained serious burn wounds while fighting the fire that has been burning in the Western Cape’s Overberg region since Thursday, has died in hospital.

John Europa from the farm Moddervlei near Elim was driving a tractor on Saturday that was used to fight the fire, when he was overcome by the flames.

Overberg disaster manager Reinard Geldenhuys says while two blazes have been brought under control, a fire is still burning in the Greyton area.
