Four firefighters have been injured while battling a blaze on the slopes of Table Mountain. The flames have gutted several structures, including part of the Rhodes Memorial restaurant and a library at the University of Cape Town. More than 200 firefighters have been battling the inferno. Currently strong winds in Cape Town are making the containment of the blaze even more difficult.
The exact cause of the fire is still not clear but the Table Mountain National Park says an initial investigation pointed to a vagrant who possibly started the inferno.
