Firefighters who battled the Overstrand wild fires for close to two weeks, held a parade in Kleinmond to appreciate the community for their support.
Lauren Howard, Working on Fire (WoF) spokesperson said the Kleinmond ward councilor had adopted the teams.
“He adopted them, fed them, gave them dry clothes when they needed it, and washed their clothes. So to thank him and the community, we arranged a little parade along the Kleinmond main road.”
Residents came out in their numbers to honor the firefighters. They watched as the firefighters were singing and dancing in a procession along the main road.
Working on fire had mobilized teams from across the Western Cape and Free State to battle the fires.
