Blaze stalls traffic on motorway

01:16, Feb 14 2013

A fire in shrubbery alongside the South Western motorway is causing traffic headaches.

Senior Sergeant Hirone Waretini said the fire was in bush near the Neilson St off-ramp and had caused smoke to billow across the motorway. 

High winds meant there was a risk of the fire spreading, he said.

Three fire crews were attending the scene.
