Osona area hit by veld fires

25 November 2021 | Disasters

Although the veld fires in the area surrounding Windhoek have calmed down recently, several major fires broke out countrywide yesterday. This image shows a fire outside Otjiwarongo, which has since been brought under control. Also, at the Osona Village close to the military base near Okahandja, a large grass fire erupted, which was still out of control by yesterday. The fire was observed from as far away as Elisenheim.
