WATCH: #KnysnaFires - Ryan and Sibs' view from Knysna

From last-minute flights to George and first impressions from the scene, Ryan and Sibs have been documenting their journey as they lend their support to the people affected by the Knysna fires.

At the base station

Ryan and Sibs report from the sports field usually used for the Knysna Oyster Festival, which has become the base station for helicopters and soldiers forming part of the rescue efforts.
