Firefighters are continuing to monitor fires in the South Peninsula as late Thursday evening the fire at Cape Town flared up again but was quickly contained.
The fire has destroyed about eight houses and 5 000 hectares of vegetation. The fire started in Muizenberg on Sunday and quickly started to spread to areas such as Hout Bay, Tokai and Kalk Bay.

Meanwhile the damage that the fire has caused in the Table Mountain National Park is estimated at about R5 million.

City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Theo Layne said at the moment they still have nine vehicles at the Muizebebrg fire area.

“We have downscale during the course of the night and those vehicles are monitoring and dealing with hot spots as and when they are required. The wind yesterday caused a flare up but they were well managed and no further assistance was required.” Layne added.
