Table Mountain Fire

Postby Justin » Wed Dec 05, 2012 8:50 am

A fire on Table Mountain in Cape Town was brought under control on Wednesday morning, the city's fire and rescue services said.

Residents who were evacuated overnight are able to return home, Lane told EWN news.

"This fire started around 1am this morning on the slope of the mountain and at this stage we don't know what caused it," said Lane.

The blaze destroyed more than one kilometre of vegetation.”

Four helicopters have been battling the blaze since early Wednesday morning.

Hey Justin,

Do you Know if the CBD Boulders were hit by the fire and potentially damaged?

Cheers

If they were it's a good thing that the site visit for the Bouldering EMP has already been done :)
