    Forest Fires Thread

    I thought we could pool all our global trauma from Forest/Bush/Veld fires into one seemless thread..

    Table mountain is on fire at the moment, somewhat worrying

    Oh, my God, we’re having a Fire sale. Oh, the burning! It burns me! Evacuate all the schoolchildren! ... “(Amazing Grace........)" This isn’t a fever! (Continues singing.) Can’t even see where the knob is! (Dramatic sigh.) And scene.

    Fire was right next to the university today. Helicopters everywhere. Scary.

    Classic show mate, not sure how appropriate that is though...

    Seriously, as the son of a fireman, my best wishes to all the men and women who have fought fires this southern summer. It takes a special kind of bravery to do that for a living.

    Yeah they were evacuating Devil's Peak. You can see why. But it's pretty much out now thank goodness. AFAIK the only casualties were two British tourists walking around on the mountain, very unlucky.

    I was being too sensitive to your insensitivity and I probably would have appologised for going too far (I don't really hope you die in a fire) BUT

    after your reply, you can blow it out your a***

    Oy Nicole, what are those towers by table mountain used for? I have always wondered, and it's always struck me as one of the most shockingly bad pieces of planning I have ever seen anywhere in the world, but I guess in South Africa we are experts at paving paradise

    Settle down mate, it's a quote from a TV show. A bit out of place, but doesn't call for that.
