CAPE TOWN - The fire raging on Table Mountain has largely been contained with no immediate threat to properties and people.

While the winds are still high, firefighters have extinguished a handful of hotspots on the mountain.

The fire destroyed parts of the University of Cape Town and the Rhodes Memorial Restaurant when it broke out on Sunday morning.
