A fire has broken out on Table Mountain on Sunday, April 18. SANParks has called for immediate evacuation from all surrounding areas as the fire has been declared “out of control”.

According to 1-Second CPT-Daily, the fire started as a result of a huge explosion at the Rhodes Memorial restaurant. However, this is yet to be confirmed.

The restaurant has allegedly burned down almost completely. A student has also been in contact with Cape Town Etc, and said that the Molecular Biology building is on fire at The University of Cape Town, upper main campus.
