Firefighting efforts are ongoing in the area of Vermaaklikheid near Heidelberg in the Southern Cape where several fires have broken out. An Air Force Orxy helicopter and three other aircraft have been roped in to assist in water bombing efforts. The fires started at the weekend amid hot and windy conditions. Yesterday, a Working on Fire pilot died after his helicopter crashed. At least seven homes were gutted by the blaze. Meanwhile, firefighters are battling a mountain fire at Tulbagh in the Boland on two fronts. The fire was ignited by lightning strikes on Tuesday. Winelands Fire spokesperson, Jo-Anne Otto, says a blaze burning closest to farms has been contained but strong winds remain a challenge elsewhere.
