Firefighters bring Glencairn blaze under control

Firefighters have managed to bring the fire on the mountain slopes of Simon’s Town under control.

The blaze, high up on the slopes of Glencairn Ridge near Seemeeu Road, was burning since about 9 am on Friday morning.

It follows a blaze in the same area three weeks ago which spread rapidly and took five days to get under control.

The City of Cape Town’s fire & rescue services spokesperson, Edward Bosch, said that all aerial resources had now been withdrawn from the scene.

“Four firefighting resources from the city’s fire and rescue service, and ground crews from the Volunteer Wildland Fire Service and TMNP, are still in attendance dealing with hotspots and flare-ups. Crews will remain on scene until the fire is extinguished.”
