Firefighters say resources are being stretched to the limit as they continue to battle two extensive fires in Worcester and De Doorns in the Boland region in the Western Cape.

Fire spokesperson Heinrich Louw says the second fire in De Doorns is now heading to Ceres, while crews are still attempting to contain a mountain fire near Worcester.

Louw says the fire, which ignited last weekend, has flared up several times due to strong winds.

Thousands of hectares of vegetation have been destroyed.

Louw says late on Friday, farmers successfully carried out a back burn to prevent it spreading to properties, assisted by Cape Winelands vehicles, contract teams, Working On Fire and Cape Nature fire teams.
