Please pray for these people that stay in St Francis. It really is bad – and the wind is still pumping!!

St Francis Chronicle

“Houses are burning all the way to the sea on the canals,” a fireman told St Francis Chronicle this evening. The fire apparently started at Royal Wharf late afternoon where some people were having a braai.

It also reportedly started when the electricity went off. From there the fierce winds that sprang up this afternoon  tossed the fire rapidly down Spray Avenue, taking down Hynsie and the Robertson’s house, then the Nortje’s house before jumping over the canals towards big Time Taverna and in the vicinity .
