But West Coast Fire Chief Bertus Senekal says it flared up again this morning.
"With the temperatures being higher than yesterday, we still have two hotspots that we are trying to contain and get out completely. We are working with ground crews, personnel and vehicles from West Coast Fire as well as two water bombers and a spotter at this stage."
