Cape Town - The N2 between Spine and Baden Powell roads in Cape Town has been closed because of a massive veld fire that is being fanned by the wind, Western Cape traffic spokesperson Kenny Africa said on Sunday.

Nobody has been injured and there have been no accidents.

Motorists should find alternative routes until the all clear is given, he said.
