Check these Somerset West fire photos on Twitter, Instagram

Wind and hot weather has combined to deliver the first major wildfires in the Western Cape of 2017, with Somerset West’s blaze being one of the more notable fires.

The effects of the fire are felt around the city at large too, as smoke sweeps over the city centre and much of the Cape Peninsula.

If you didn’t realise the scale of the blaze, perhaps these Twitter images will help…

There were some noteworthy images uploaded to Instagram as well, seen below.
