Milson firefighters were called to the Palmerston North Golf Club last night for an unattended burn off.
The club had a permit to set trees and shrubs in its burning pit on fire, but the wind picked up and firefighters were called to the Brightwater Tce course shortly after 6.30pm to check.
Station officer Nick Pine said it was nothing of concern except it wasn't being watched.
They found a worker to keep an eye on it.
