The City of Cape Town and firefighters are tackling 11 blazes across the Cape Peninsula, according to a report by EWN.
The biggest fires are in Simon’s Town and Somerset West, stated the report.
“Several roads have been closed in Simon’s Town, with several properties having been evacuated as a result of the fire,” said EWN.
Justin Sullivan of Sullivan Photography is at the scene of the fires and has captured photos of those fighting the blaze.
Sullivan said winds in the area were favourable for wildfires and have challenged firefighters.
