Fire in the Winelands

Watch the video
On the 24th of january 2007, a ferocious fire swept through the vineyards of Stellenbosch in the cape. Through an amazing partnership between the vignerons and the South African air force, a major tragedy was averted. Pictures and video cannot convey the immense scale o=r the intense heat of the fire. No lives were lost!

Sorry to hear about this fire. I wonder why it has gone through the vineyards?
When we have such big fire in south of France forest, vines are usually the places safe or the lines that stop (with help of firemen) the fire.
Was it very windy or dry?
Good continuation and hope the best for harvest.
