The Eden District municipality says fire fighters are still battling several blazes high up in the mountains between Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn. Several farms in the vicinity were under threat but were protected by fire-fighting crews. The fires broke out earlier this week due to high temperatures. Fires are also burning in the Albertinia and Riversdale areas. Several fire crews that include both the Eden District and local municipality fire fighters, Cape Nature as well as Working on Fire teams are assisting in the operation. Eden District Municipality spokesperson, Herman Pieters, says crews will focus on hot spots and mopping up operations today.
