Fire fighters worked overnight on the Lourensford Estate as fires spread between Stellenbosch and Franschoek due to high winds.
Ian Schnetler, chief fire officer at the city of Cape Town, says they had two helicopters trying to put out the fire since the early hours of the morning.
The fire was not put out completely since last Tuesday and with the winds yesterday it is difficult to contain the fire.— Ian Schnetler, chief fire officer at the city of Cape Town
Schnetler says they can't rule out human activity on how the fires were started. There is currently an investigation into whether the fires were deliberately started.
Any fire except for possible lightning, there is intervention of humankind sometimes.— Ian Schnetler, chief fire officer at the city of Cape Town
