Fire quickly contained

A fire broke out along the N2 between Wilderness and Sedgefield close to Langvlei Dunes on 12 December 2017, but was quickly brought under control.

Within minutes after the fire broke out, a spotter plane was circling the area. A helicopter was deployed and making use of a 'Bambi Bucket' the fire was quickly brought under control, with the help of fire fighters on the ground.

With the The Garden Route fire season, which runs until April 2018, in full swing, the recently opened Denneoord Aerial Fire Base is already proving extremely valuable.

Helicopters and fixed wing planes are now able to be airborne in minutes, saving a huge amount of time reaching fires, especially in areas not accessable using vehicles.
