Well, the fire didn’t go away. This short Video clip shows Day 2 of the fire in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve

At right, the aftermath of Wednesday’s fire is visible in the center. Burning right through the night the fire advanced over the mountains seen in the background. This morning, on day two, the fire had moved into new territory and was burning strongly.

In this previous post yesterday you can see a photo of the fire just minutes after it started around 2pm on Wednesday.

By late yesterday afternoon the wind was a factor, blowing strongly from the south-east. The fire was moving rapidly into the mountainous area north of the N2 national road, threatening farms in the area.
