The mountains were covered by a white cloud of smoke this morning which was a good sign that the flames were being controlled at last!
I have posted previously about the dangerous fire that broke out in the mountains a week ago and the relentless task of the firefighters to reach the flames in the inaccessible areas of the high mountain peaks.
This post is a report on the latest situation.
Two days ago, our sky looked like this with hot flames burning behind our mountains.
The firefighters worked through the night and here is the same mountain this morning.
Here is another view of the fire clouds today.
It is 37 degrees C and the hot winds make it even warmer here, and we hear that it is in the low 40's on the other side of the mountain.
A suspected "Kite" bird that I got on camera in the yellow clouded sky two days ago.
And here was a similar bird that I got in the same sky this morning.
Now I know that the readers would want more information about the actual fire.
Watch the videos in this fire report;
The fires blazing in the Franschhoek and Jonkershoek mountains in the Western Cape continue to demand colossal efforts by fire fighting services a week since they began, with flames now burning high into inaccessible terrain and an approximate 13 600 hectares of land having been scorched
And That's All Friends!
Note: All photos are my own and taken with a Canon Powershot SX60HS Bridge camera.
May it be that you have also found some relief in the pictures.
