Fires started up yesterday; Sunday. Originating in Muizenburg and fanned by heavy winds they soon spread across a large area.

Noordhoek Manor, a retirement home has been evacuated. According to a local source four homes in Hout Bay have been destroyed.

Helicopters began water bombing the fires as soon as they received the alert. It appears that the fire is now concentrated in the gully behind Lions head; around thirty vehicular fire fighters are also tackling the blaze.

Thick; black smoke can be seen hanging over the area today as lighter winds keep the fires more localised. The main areas for concern seem to be Hout Bay and Noordhoek.

Parts of the Ou Kaapse Weg and Chapman’s Peak Drive have been closed to traffic according to locals.

Weather predictions are high temperatures and strong winds.
