A small fire caused by a lawnmower throwing up a stone quickly burned out of control at Rarangi yesterday.
Rarangi chief fire officer Steve Banks said a crew was at the fire within eight minutes but it had already burned 20 metres.
The fire was on private property but could have quickly spread to Department of Conservation land.
