Cape Town Residents Evacuate as Table Mountain Fire Spreads

Precautionary evacuations got underway in a Cape Town suburb on April 19, after a fire spread towards the Vredehoek area overnight, the city council said.

Table Mountain National Park’s fire manager said three fires tore through the park on Sunday.

In video shared to Twitter by @Billie_Demas, the fire can be seen burning.

The fire reached the University of Cape Town, where students were evacuated and parts of a library destroyed. Credit: @Billie_Demas via Storyful
