Reports state UCT fire was started intentionally, suspicious vehicle spotted
In more recent news about another serious fire incident, an investigation into the wildfire at Table Mountain National Park in April shows that it was not caused by natural causes but was started intentionally.
The City of Cape Town and SANParks released a statement that indicated the fire was actually arson, according to eNCA.
An investigator from Enviro Wildfire Services, Rob Erasmus, says that a white car was spotted two minutes before the fire was reported. It is believed that the fire was started by the people who were in the car. Since the investigation is ongoing, the public will not be receiving more information at this stage.
“We managed to study the CCTV footage in the area and determined that before the fire started, a vehicle was seen on the shoulder of the road, driving very slowly, and a few minutes later, the fire was started. We believe the fire was started by human intent,” said Erasmus in a quote from News24.
