Fire on Signal Hill

Fire on Signal Hill
We were just entering the V&A Waterfront this afternoon when I noticed that there was rather a lot of smoke coming from the slopes of Signal Hill - too much to be from someone's backyard braai, I thought.

Then I saw the line of flames creeping along the side of the hill... and then, with much excitement, I spotted the helicopter and bambi bucket. If you live in an area that suffers a lot of bush-fires, you'd be familiar with the bambi bucket - we see them overhead pretty often in summer. But not usually from quite this close, which is why we couldn't resist getting a few photos.
