Dozens of firefighters contained a raging fire in Table View after strong winds spread flames threatening homes and livestock in the community.

Fire and Rescue spokesperson Jermaine Carelse said at almost 2.30pm on Wednesday, Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue was alerted to a fire under Blaauwberg Road bridge in Table View.

Strong winds fanned the flames to an extent where the first crew from Melkbos called for back up after assessing the situation, resulting in 16 firefighting appliances and 70 firefighters on the scene.

Three Inspectors from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA also joined to assist injured and displaced animals in distress.

Carelse explained that the situation was brought to calm at 8pm, with no damages to property or injuries reported at this time

“I suspect that crews will be on scene for a considerable time to ensure the fire is extinguished and will monitor the situation throughout the night/morning for any flare-ups that may occur,” Carelse said.

“Property owners were advised to take their animal companions for veterinary checks immediately should they show signs of distress for possible smoke inhalation,” the SPCA said.
