A man charged over the fire that destroyed hundreds of units at Kiwi Self Storage in Kilbirnie has been remanded until July with police still making inquiries.

The man's name remains suppressed until a full hearing next month.

Crown prosecutor Sally Carter today said the police were still working on determining the scale of the offending with 370 units at the storage site destroyed.

She said there were also forensic issues to be sorted out.

The man's lawyer Doug Ewen asked for the name suppression to be continued and said his client's identity was an issue.

The 34-year-old man spent his time in the dock gesturing to people in the back of the court.

He has pleaded not guilty to damaging by fire immovable property level 2, block B at the storage facility on April 4.

Wellington District Court judge Bruce Davidson remanded him in custody for a further case review hearing.
