Cape Town Fire-fighters have been monitoring a fire on Devils Peak. The blaze broke out near Table Mountain yesterday afternoon.
Officials say a team has been dispatched to keep a close eye on the area.
Meanwhile according to an international Airport Rescue Firefighting compliance report, poorly trained airport firefighters at the Cape Town International Airport do not know how to use their equipment, do not know their assigned duties on fire trucks and lack the experience of driving the trucks.
This poses as a risk and might jeopardise the airport’s operating licence
