South Africa — Tshwane Emergency Services has urged residents to immediately report veld fires after fire-fighters battled over 60 blazes in the Pretoria area on Saturday.

Several fires were reported in different areas around the N4.

The strong winds caused the fires to spread quickly.

Emergency Services Johan Pieterse said all their departments were called in to fight the fires.

“People must please report these fires immediately, stop with firebreaks at the small holdings.

“We are not sure why all of these fires, all of a sudden start.

“We are not sure whether people are setting things alight on purpose.”
