According to a statement made by the City of Cape Town’s Theo Layne, there is no need to panic as the fire burns far from nearest houses and residents’ private property.
“There’s no immediate danger to any property and the fire is being fanned by very strong south-easterly winds,” he said. Besides that, Layne urged motorist to be careful on the road and avoid dangerous zone.
To assist in the operation officials from the West Coast Municipality were also summoned.
