Sadly the summer fire season is well and truly upon us now. This morning a fire started just on the right hand side of the bridge near Genadendal and by 13h30 it was out of control and burning in multiple directions. Some 7km way just behind the Moravian Church this fire broke out in some loose scrub at 14h00.
Within minutes of the Greyton fire being reported by concerned residents local fire fighters were on the scene and in action. These fires are the results of a good week of + 35C temperatures and could be caused by a number of sources. Broken glass, braai fires and discarded cigarettes are only a few of the usual suspects.
