Fire near Clarens

The Free State has suffered badly from fires this year – and given the very dry conditions this is hardly surprising.   Thankfully Clarens is well-prepared (thanks mainly to the Clarens Fire Association and  our Clarens based Working On Fire team.)

The fire above the Clarens Mountain Estate appears to be under control. Thank you – and thank you again to all our firefighters, and to those amazing mechanical dragonflies which “piss” on the fire with such amazing accuracy.
