Third fire in Grabouw

Fires are not new to the Cape Region and the dry and hot conditions this time of the year does not make it better. Recently fires on Signal Hill needed to be put out and Grabouw has now seen its third fire.

It is suspected that the recent fire started after a vehicle was caught alight on the side of the N2, eventually spreading to the dry bushes. Two helicopters and about 67 firefighters were called in to bring the fire under control.

There were no reports of any person injured in the latest fire.
