Watch! Overnight Blazing fire consumes Lion’s Head mountain in Cape Town, close to suburbs

The sudden fire outbreak witnessed a quick response team.

The wild-fire that swept across Cape Town’s famous Lion’s Head mountain moved towards residential neighbourhoods on Sunday, prompting several people to evacuate their homes.

A Cape Town fire service spokesman told the media that 70 firefighters and 20 trucks were fighting the blaze. Local media reported that the firefighting effort was expected to last all night.

Bad wind conditions were complicating efforts to bring the blaze under control, according to Western Cape local government spokesperson James-Brent Styan.

Video and photographs of the fire flooded social media, with some describing the scene as “Armageddon”. Images showed thick black smoke in the sky as the blaze swept close to the affluent neighbourhood of Fresnaye.

The fire was also close to the suburbs of Signal Hill and Seapoint.

At the moment, the blazing fire is under control.
