CAPE TOWN - Emergency crews are monitoring hot spots on Signal Hill and in the Gordon's Bay area which were gripped by fires on Thursday.

Strong winds fuelled a blaze on Signal Hill and as firefighters battled the flames another inferno erupted in Gordon's Bay.

City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services' Theo Layne says, "as long as we have two vehicles at the Signal Hill fire where they are dealing with any hot spots, we are still assisted by Table Mountain National Parks."

He says at the Gordon's Bay fire, firefighters have left the scene and are purely monitoring the area.
