No damage to shops or restaurants but the mountains above Simon's Town are blackened sand dunes. However, the rest of Simon's Town is too pretty and quaint for it to matter.

We have just returned from a trip there in October , and although there are a few blackened scorch marks on the hill behind teh town there is little evidence of a fire
