On Sunday there was a huge veld fire between Parklands and Killarney Gardens. I don't have the details about how it started. The fire was spreading rapidly and soon the fire fighters were on the scene with their fire trucks. After that two helicopters arrived and threw water on the blaze. They got the water from the river and from Flamingovlei dam. The fire fighters did a remarkable job at stopping the fire.
It was sad to see how many birds fled the area where they stayed.
