I was just about to go to sleep when I noticed an orange glow through the bedroom windows. I was half expecting a neighbours house to be up in flames. I had NO IDEA that it’s the mountain that’s totally in flames.
I mean, I live 25km from the city, across Table Bay … and it’s bright enough to shine through my curtains!
My prayers go out to the people who are currently evacuating their homes, and to the firefighters working tonight.
