Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency shows wildfires just east of Cape Town, South Africa.
These fires, located around the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, are some of many that have threatened the region over the last few weeks.
The nature reserve and its surrounding roads and resorts are currently closed due to the fires.
This image was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2B satellite on January 6, 2019.
