The fire is burning between the mountain and the R44 towards Arabella. Firefighters have managed to partially contain the flames. Meanwhile, Overstrand mayor, Annelie Rabe, has cautioned the public from disturbing the work of the firefighters, saying it’s not a sightseeing site, nor a tourist attraction. They had to deploy law enforcement officers to manage the behaviour of citizens.
Firefighters in the Overberg are continuing to fight a blaze in Kleinmond.
