Firefighters optimistic on bringing Grabouw blaze under control
It is suspected that the mountain blaze was started deliberately at around 1am on Thursday.
CAPE TOWN - Firefighters in the Overberg say about 80% of the vegetation fire between Sir Lowry's Pass and Grabouw is under control.
It's suspected the mountain blaze was started deliberately at around 1am on Thursday.
Overberg's Chief Fire Officer Reinard Geldenhuys says a large contingent of ground staff have been deployed and aerial resources are on standby.
“We have deployed a lot of people. We are positive we can bring it under control, but if the wind changes we could lose it.”
