SANParks Fire and Technical Services Manager Philip Prins say crews have been dispatched to attend to the blaze.
“We had another fire which started approximately say over an hour ago, there was a report of another fire above De Waal Drive, so when we got there, there were three different fires that were burning and this was definitely started deliberately so we had to pull resources from another fire and with the assistance of the city fire services, we just contained these three different areas now.”
