Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Table Mountain fire erupts in Cape Town, forces evacuation at nearby campus” – below is their description.
A wildfire on the slopes of South Africa’s Table Mountain forced University of Cape Town students to evacuate, as runaway flames set several campus buildings ablaze and firefighters used helicopters to water-bomb the area. The fire started early near a memorial to politician Cecil Rhodes, located on Devils Peak, another part of Cape Town’s mountainous backdrop, before spreading rapidly up the slopes. The university, ranked among the best on the continent, is largely built on the slopes of Devil’s Peak and is situated close to where the fire started
