Incredible new photos show the battle against Somerset West fires

Areas in Somerset West were evacuated this week after wildfires damaged several homes in the area.

The fires have been raging since Tuesday morning. On Tuesday afternoon, the fires were believed to be under control, but afternoon winds fuelled the blaze.

Justin Sullivan of Sullivan Photography is at the scene of the fires and has captured new photos of those fighting the blaze.

The photos are posted below and have been used with his permission. More photos are available on his Facebook page.

He said firefighters were still on the scene on Wednesday, with unconfirmed reports that seven structures had been destroyed by the blaze.
