Firefighters battle Redhill blaze

Three helicopters are being used to fight a fire that started near Red Hill road at Simon's Town in the Cape Peninsula.

Wilfred Solomons, the Cape Town disaster management spokesperson, says the informal settlement at Red Hill is not in danger, but homes near the Seawind Farm are being threatened. Solomons says the strong south easterly wind is making it difficult for firefighters to extinguish the flames. sabcnews
