Table Mountain Fire: Update 3


The flames are blazing closer to the homes in Upper Fresnaye – last reports had them at 200 meters away, but they seem a bit nearer from my front balcony – and residents are on their roofs with hosepipes at the ready. (This from radio reports. I can’t see the houses on the Fresnaye hill for the smoke.)

Firefighting resources remain concentrated in the city bowl, but they’ll be needed on the Atlantic Seaboard soon.

Meanwhile, Sean Keener sends in more pictures from Camps Bay.
