CAPE TOWN – The case against the man accused of starting a fire in the Overstrand has been postponed to later this month for a formal bail application.

Shelton April made his second appearance in the Caledon Magistrates Court earlier on Monday.

The deadly fire is believed to have been caused by a flare shot off on New Year’s Eve.

A woman in Pringle Bay died from smoke inhalation and several houses have been destroyed.

The blaze has been contained in Betty’s Bay and Hermanus.
