In South Africa, a fire has prompted the evacuation of hikers at Table Mountain National Park, the most famous landmark in Cape Town.
Officials said Sunday that more than 120 firefighters were on the scene, and several helicopters have been deployed as well.
According to CNN, officials said the fire was "out of control."
The rescue services have reported no fatalities, but the city's mayor said one person is being treated for serious burns.
The fire has also destroyed multiple buildings at the University of Cape Town.
According to the national parks agency, it may have spread from a fire left behind by a homeless person.
