Victoria Road along the Atlantic Seaboard is closed in both directions due to low visibility from a fire. The blaze, between Bakoven and Hout Bay, was reported to Table Mountain National Park authorities earlier on Saturday, January 2.
Firefighters are on the scene attempting to douse the flames which are being fanned by a slight increase in the wind.
“Our two #NewYearsDay2021 crews are assisting @TableMountainNP with a fire on the slopes above Hout Bay. Swirling winds have made efforts slightly tricky but crews are working hard to contain the fire,” said the Volunteer Wildfire Services on Twitter.
