Helicopters continued to drop water on the fire burning in Cape Town’s Table Mountain National Park on April 20.

Local media reported that South African National Defence Force helicopters were deployed to hoist water on Tuesday morning as strong winds died down.

The fire started on Sunday, April 18, and reached the University of Cape Town, where students were evacuated and a library building was destroyed.

Video shared on Twitter by @nomvul_khuzwayo shows a helicopter with a water hoist passing overhead. In a comment accompanying the video, the source said she “woke up to chaos” and that there was “smoke everywhere.” Credit: @nomvul_khuzwayo via Storyful
