Fire on Devil's Peak

2am on 18 March - I got home from cutting rocks in the Stellenbosch geology department to find my neighborhood being evacuated.

It burned fast through the fynbos but as everything is built of cement, nothing else caught fire near my house. Now there are pink and white lillies growing in the ash. Rumour has it they only bloom after a fire.

Thats pretty exciting. The house next to Weeks burned a while back. That was also exciting. Its on YouTube somewhere.
