Derby – Owner of Kareekloof Game Farm Leon Prinsloo, was seriously injured in a runaway veld fire near Derby on Saturday 12 September.

Leon, who has years of experience with wildfires, rushed to help with a fire that spread on a neighbouring farm. The wind was exceptionally strong, and in the blink of an eye, the fire surrounded him. He was unable to get out before sustaining second-degree burn wounds over 60% of his body.

In an interview with Platinum Weekly, Leon’s wife Annalize Prinsloo said that he is currently in the high care unit, receiving treatment for his burns. Leon is a pillar in his community and our thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family and his friends. We pray for a full recovery.
