iKapa Honorary Ranger and Volunteer Wild Fire Services  Fire Fighter Ruedi Siegenthaler saved a puffadder from certain death on 27 October whilst fighting a fire on Devil's Peak. The snake was spotted in the middle of a burned area and would have surely perished if not spotted, and taken to safety.
