Firefighters are working to extinguish a fire on Devil’s Peak in Cape Town which began in the early hours of Thursday morning.
City of Cape Town’s fire and rescue services spokesperson Theo Layne said they were alerted to the fire at around 06:30 and teams were currently on the scene to try to quell blaze.
The fire had affected several hectares of vegetation but was spreading upwards, meaning there is no immediate threat to life or property just yet, he said.
Officials were monitoring the fire closely.
The cause of the fire was still unclear.
The incoming lane of De Waal Drive has been closed due to the fire.[Source: News24]
