Dozens of fire fighters from around the Hutt Valley fought the blaze in windy conditions.

A total of 14 fire trucks went to the fire, seven from the Fire Service and seven from Volunteer Rural Fire Fighters.

The fire was brought under control at about 10.30pm.

No property or houses were damaged.

The cause of the blaze will be investigated.

What do you make of New World's Little Shop toys?

I agree with Gareth Morgan, toys are 'brainwashing' kids.

They're harmless fun.

They're educational.

Cunning marketing but not brainwashing.
