Officials battle Cape Town fires

Firefighters are battling several fires across the Peninsula on Friday afternoon, Cape Town emergency officials said.

Rescue services spokesperson Theo Layne said crews are attending to at least 16 incidents in the area.

“None of them are threatening any property,” he added.

Layne said the hot and windy conditions are hampering firefighting efforts.
