A “large vegetation fire” was raging on the slopes of Table Mountain above the Imizamo Yethu informal settlement, City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services spokesman Theo Layne said on Friday night.

The fire, which was being fanned by a strong south-easterly wind, was not posing any danger to properties.

Firefighters were however finding it difficult to access the blaze.

Ten fire and rescue vehicles were on scene.

City firefighters were being assisted by Table Mountain National Parks employees.
