CAPE TOWN - Firefighters are battling a vegetation fire along the West Coast Road near Atlantis.

Fire and Rescue’s Theo Layne says there is no danger to property at this stage.

“It’s just the vegetation that is burning, no immediate danger to property and the firefighting crew will remain on scene.”

Meanwhile, firefighters are continuing to monitor a wildfire on the mountain slopes above Hout Bay.

Layne says water bombing efforts are continuing as the blaze remains inaccessible to ground crews.
