Fire in Cape Town pictures

by oneafrikan on January 14, 2005

Those of you who know me know that we have an office in Richmond, London, and a development office in Cape Town – where all the technical stuff is kept.

Anyways – yesterday, there was a pretty big fire that swept down Table Mountain and almost swallowed up our office….

Good thing we have backups, and webcams! – we watched the action from our office in London.

Here are the 2005-01 Fire Pictures, curtesy of Norman.


With the drought down there I guess the mountainside was like tinder just waiting to go up.

Haven’t seen any news on this, but I hope noone ws hurt.

Nope, none were.
Luckily we had some backups procedures in place, and everyone could get away in time…. apparently the fire came very close to the office…

Actually, a British woman perished in the flames.

And it was all started by a Londoner.
